DopplerPSK is a great program for dealing with doppler shift on the 10 meter
uplink.  The point being made that Yes, all mode rigs can do very small
tuning steps in VFO mode as can my FT847.  If I were going to use that one
rig for NO-84, even with SatPC32, I would turn the doppler correction for
uplink "OFF" and only track the 435 downlink FM so I could hear the FM
carrier throughout,  but let doppler PSK adjust audio tone for doppler and
that will nicely keep the PSK signal stable AT the Satellite, inside the
28.120 + 3Khz receive passband.   The cool thing is that you can still use
just an FM mobile rig to receive the FM downlink, and 5Khz steps will still
work pretty much just fine.

Yes what Tom and Scott said is what I do and is the correct way of working
NO-84. You cannot just tune the 10m uplink like you would a linear
transponder with SatPc32. It will make the PSK31 signal on the transponder
undecodeable. The only real way to work it is with Doppler PSK. My setup
consists of a FT-847 on the 70cm downlink, with SatPC32 correcting the
doppler on the downlink which by the way I have no issues with. Then I have
my FT-950 doing the uplinking on 10m (I use the FT-847 for VHF/UHF/Sat Only
and FT-950 for HF only). I use a homebrew dipole that is actually for
40/80m but it tunes up on 10 meters just fine and works well for the uplink
on NO-84. I then use FLdigi to decode the PSK31 signals as FLDigi allows
multi-decoding for PSK31 which allows me to decode multiple signals in the
passband at once. And of course I use DopplerPSK for the generation and
correction of the PSK31 signal. Hope this helps. Unfortunately there is not
a lot of activity on the PSK31 transponder but I hope that changes with the
upcoming launch with Psat-2.

FYI, I got a response from Fabrice, author of SatSat suggesting that the
AMSAT URL might have changed.  I told him what it was and asked how I could
help, but got no response.  However, SatSat is now displaying AO-85 with no
problem so he must have fixed whatever was going on.  Thanks Fabrice!

 Steve,
Theoretically, 2:1 would have you "losing" 11 percent ofyour TX power due to
reflection/mismatch. With your 4.9W,that would only be about 1/2 W. Doesn't
seem like much tobe worrying about.
Polarization should be more of a concern.

I gota Dreamcatcher Data Radiowhen they where on sale for $49. I can
confirm that you can replace the supplied USB WiFi NIC with the TP-Link
TL-UE3000 USB Ethernet NIC.

I have to use a Pringles can on the LNB to get a marginalsignal, SNR
-12.5 to -14 dB. Every time it rains I have to readjustthe LNB.

I have senta few test ARPS messages from N4MTT-2 via rf to a local
i-gate. The messages then were seen on the down link via a text file.
The Skylark operating system has a "Messages" application that displays
the text file.

APRS Link can display the history of the messages sent to OUTNET,
https://aprs.link/app/aprs/stations/messages-OUTNET

I noticed the messages I sent to OUTNET did not receive a REPLY ACK.
There where duplicate messages on the down link from another SSID. I
wanted to avoid sending duplicate messages. In Xastir I canceled the
messages after the first message transmission.

I agreethatit "is a powerful capability" .

Thank you to the folks who have helped me with this. My gear is working

I'm curious about satellite PO-101. The IARU coordination page says the
uplink is 437.5 MHz but the Microsat-Diwata webpage says the uplink is
437.7 MHz. Which one is correct?

I don't see a lot of reports on the AMSAT Current Status page for
PO-101. Is it working?

437.5 MHz is the correct frequency.

The transponder is activated by schedule. Schedule updates are posted
on their Twitter account at https://twitter.com/Diwata2PH

It should be on for this afternoon's passes, so listen for it!

Hey everybody.

Just walked in this evening (14-June-2019) & happened to catch the ISS at
decent elevation around 2230 UTC.  The packet digipeater sounded great and
I had a quick exchange of digipeated 'Message' packets with W4TBD who
happens to be just on the other side of town.

As the ISS tracked NW to SE, I stood by to see who else might be around.  I
keep the FM radio's squelch open & volume up a little to judge how the
downlink packets are sounding.

All of a sudden, there was a dead carrier on (or at least near) the 145.825
ISS packet downlink.  Sounded like a neighbor keying up to mess with me -
except for the fact that I don't have any neighbors.

I quickly spun another radio to the area of 145.825 and set it to USB to
see if I could recognize what that jamming carrier was.  Turns out it
wasn't a dead carrier at all, but a tone sweeping back and forth.  Someone
else needs to check me (since you can't ever be sure from a single
observation), but from the SUBJECT line of this post you know that the
offending tone appeared to be from XW-2D which was passing directly
overhead at the same time.  Here is a link to a screen shot of their orbits
when this happened:

https://www.qsl.net/k/k4kdr//images/iss-xw2d.png

... so, if this VERY strong 2-meter signal was in fact from XW-2D, you
might want to keep track of where that satellite is located just as a point
of reference.   There have been previous posts about XW-2D's transponder
not working correctly.

If you have uplink or downlink trouble with anything that operates in the
145.800 - 145.900 range, this might be the cause if I'm guessing correctly.

73,

-Scott,  K4KDR
