Hi Brian

With the introduction of the new Icom in Jan, I would expect the used prices
of 9100s to plummet. Might be a better buy?

Hi All,
 ?? Is anyone else noticing any? issues with the JY1-sat dashboard? I
can start it with the sat present and it will instantly lock and track,
next pass it will ignore the signal, kill it and restart it and bam
instant lock.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"

I have several raw IQ captures from last few days with the new satellites
passing and am trying to decode the AX.25 packets from two of them. I'm
using SDRSharp to reply them and pull the signals out using USB mode. I've
already replayed them successfully and decoded both JY1-Sat and AO-95 using
their respective software packages, but I'm having trouble figuring out
ITASAT and MOVE-2. I'm using Virtual Audio Cable to loop back the audio and
UZ7HO Sound modem in an attempt to decode them. For ITASAT, it's set to 1200
bps BPSK and for MOVE-2, I'm using the 9600 baud variant of BPSK Sound modem
from his site. However, efforts have been fruitless to get it to resolve any
packets. Any pointers for these satellites would be appreciated.

I was wondering if the downlink was on 2 meters do I really need a preamp
like on uhf?
And is the rf switched preamp from Advanced Receiver Research will be ok or
just a mirage/mfj ?
I am going to use this portable with my Yaesu FT 817ND and an Arrow Antenna.

 Michael,
I work 2X FT-817's with no preamps, an Arrow and 2 x 9ft LMR240UF cables in
an Amazon camera bag.
I tried pre-amps in the past and it really did not do much, especially in an
urban environment where 2M band is already very noisy. I did when I first
got into satellite but now portable I don't bother.?
I worry more about desense on FO-29 and finally have that tackled, through a
Lowpass filter and cleaning the dirty BNC connectors!
I would experiment first before spending $$ on the ARR pre-amps which I do
own. I think you will find you can do just fine without them when portable.
73, Adrian AA5UK.

On December 3rd, 2018, ExseedSat was launched on a Falcon 9 vehicle from
Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Part of Spaceflight's SSO-A:
Smallsat Express launch,  ExseedSat was built by a team of Indian radio hams
including Ashhar Farhan (VU2ESE), George Phillips (VU2GT), Gurudutta Panda
(VU3GDP), Sasi Bhusan (VU3ELR), and Nitin Mutin (VU3TYG). Initial telemetry
has been received around the world.

At the request of Exseed Space, AMSAT hereby designates ExseedSat as

Hi to all!

In my club we are building a groundstation, and we want to make two
LNA's one for VHF and other to UHF eggbeater antennas. Someone can share
a circuit to do one for each band??? i can't find it in google (maybe
i'm searching wrong).

Thanks in advance
