 Good morning,
I seem to be behind the power curve and am missing on quite an event with
the new Qxcar-100.???? I may or my not have the equipment to contact or
receive a beacon or even try to work through it but:
What are its basic frequencies up/down link?What is/are the beacon
frequencies?And at -122.000 vy 48.000 (CN87) can I "see" it)?What will be
the uplink requested power?


I don't see it on most of the normal websites


Thank you
John

Hi!

On my way to the Yuma Hamfest which starts on Friday, I
will make a detour to grid DM31 in southern Arizona once
again tomorrow. I am only planning to work 4 passes from
there: two on AO-92 (1647 & 1821 UTC), and two more on
AO-91 (1800 & 1933 UTC). These 4 passes cover the
continental USA, for those who may have missed my day-long
trip to DM31 a couple of weekends ago. I am also hoping
to pick up some new grids, so I can obtain a satellite
VUCC award for operating from the Organ Pipe Cactus National
Monument area (basically grids DM31 and DM32 in Arizona's
Pima County). I currently have confirmed contacts with 99
different grids, from my trips to the national monument over
the past 9+ years (25 of those came from my most-recent
trip on 2 February).

All QSOs made from DM31 tomorrow will be uploaded to Logbook
of the World. If you would like a QSL card to confirm a contact
with WD9EWK, please e-mail me directly with the QSO details. No
need to first send me a card or SASE to get my card.

73!

I guess the fact that it is the same radio and just a new replacement TNC
means that things should mostly be the same.  But then again, nothing is
ever exactly the same.  Just the slightest difference in audio tone levels
out of the new TNC could make a slight difference and for those who may
have been on the good side of the "edge" might just get bumped over to the
bad side of the edge.

It was only a theory.  Thanks to Ken for clarifying what is new...

Bob, your guess would be more likely if the ground station was using an
external TNC whereby the settings might have gotten mucked up somewhere
along the way.  But, I, for one, am using the same TH-D74 and the same
TM-D710G I was using before.  It's unlikely that both radios went weird at
the same time.

I really wish the problem was on my end.  It's a lot easier to fix things
on the ground than it is up there!

Im gonna take a stab with zero current knowledge.

Butover the years, one DIGI on ISS uses a radio and an external TNC with
audio connections.  The other digi on ISS used a Kenwood with internal TNC
directly connected to the discriminator and modulator.  One has a flat
response and the other has the normal preemphasis and deemphasis.

So if one transmits tones that are inbalanced, then one system does better
than the other.  And in fact, with just a few dB of inbalance in the wrong
direction, no amount of RF power will correct that.  It simply will not
decode.

You can hear this on terrestrial packet frequencies.  Probably 80% of all
the signals on the air "work" but have terribly misconfigured tones.
People just hook'em'up and "it works" to the local digi, but they are not
aware that it might not work at all in weak signal realm where tone
settings must be ideal.

On my mobile, I see some signals that are dead full quieting with all
signal bars that do not decode, and then I see another kenwood with only 3
bars and noisy that does just fine.  Tone balance is exteremely critical.

Everyone should look at their tones on an oscope or at least listen to
their tones compared to a good known signal. (Factory TNC in a k enwood).
Though, when you listen to or look at "your " tones, the characteristics
of the audio in that receiver can also have a skew.

And, do NOT look at them one at a time.  That tells you nothing.
Since
the speech circuits will adjust them to the same level usually...
Look at
the relative amplitudes of the two.  You can fix them with the right
capacitor either in series to improve the high tone, or in parallel to
diminish the high tone.

But the right cap must perfectly match the impedance of your particular
set up.

I have tried two different radios, an Icom IC-2820h and a Kenwood TM-V71A.
No luck with the Icom at full power on a high elevation pass. Better luck
with the Kenwood but only on higher passes and transmitting with 50w.

Other operators have been able to get their packets digipeated with
Kenwood APRS-Ready HTs, so it's kind of puzzling.

I'm using a Mobilinkd TNC3. I have no problem hitting distant terrestrial
digipeaters with both setups.

Hi John,

I am afraid you are not in the coverage area see
https://amsat-uk.org/2019/02/10/qatar-oscar-100-web-receiver-now-live/

but you can see and hear what is going on using the webSDR described
above. The transponder S Band RX is amazingly sensitive and the X Band
downlink mighty loud!

Thanks Michael ?N8iup

Only X members away from getting $Y million in donations to design,
prototype, test, and launch, and N volunteers to accomplish the task.

(for various values of X, Y, and N)

Subject: [amsat-bb] Setting up the D72 for ISS packet?
Message-ID: <5e5eb008ea6a82695f27459a31de54f5@????.?????.???>

Setting up the TH-D72 for ISS packet:



Choose the APRS menu and set your CALLSIGN on the BASIC SET menu.



Tune  the radio BAND A to 145.825 with a good antenna and minimal coax loss.

Turn on the  TNC by pressing the TNC key to bring up the little tiny
APRS12 lettering in the top of the screen.



That?s all y ou need to start receiving ISS APRS packets. (I think)



To transmit, you need to turn on your GPS **or** turn it off and manually
enter your position using the POS key.



Then when you want to transmit, hit the BCON key twice.



Everyone, Did I miss anything in this minimal summary?

Bob,

I have the Kenwood TH-D72A that comes with TNC, but have no idea how to use
it. Even the manual is some what vague. Is there anyone on this site that
may be able to help me with it? The HT has over 500 menus and I'm still
trying to learn all of them.

Thanks,



Jerry...

Hey,

ISS transmits SSTV during certain events. The last one ended 3 days ago
and then next one will be probably in a couple of months.

You can watch this blog[1] for any news on the scheduled events.

Sometimes ISS transmits for its whole orbit, sometimes only for a
fraction of it. So, depending on the event there could be transmissions
above Argentina.

Cheers,
fredy
