Hi Gabriel

Have a look on AMSAT-DL's forum, there is lots of info there.

With my 0.3 f/D dish here, I am using the G3RUH 2.25t helix with a 22mm
pipe inside, along its axis. The pipe is squeezed at one end into a WG16
flange.

Gabriel,

I do not know if available in EU, but I used an 86cm offset feed dish
originally used for Ku-band satellite TV here in the US for receiving
AO-40 2.4 GHz telemetry.  It used a six turn helical feed and db6nt
preamp to Drake downconverter to 123 MHz IF (FT-847).

I use a 60cm offset feed dish, commonly used in the lower-48 states
of the US for satellite TV for my 10-GHz station.  Feed is W1GHZ
linear pol feed with corrugated horn.  Most likely you will need a CP
feed for Oscar-100.
http://www.kl7uw.com/Another_Dish_Tripod.pdf

Many eme'rs are having success on  10-GHz with as small at 60cm
though 1m is better (for eme).  I suspect Oscar-100 signals are much
stronger than eme.

I am not QRV on satellite at present but have plans to restore my
AO-40 antenna system this summer using a FT-736R on mode-UV or LU sats.

Hola Gabriel

Not yet. And that's not an easy Feed. The problem is the isolation between
2,4 and 10 GHz, and also the different polarization V/H (NB/WB) for the 10
GHz Downlink.
I know, there are several Ham's, who try to construct such a feed. There are
several infos on the amsat-dl forum..

William G?ldi, HB9PZK, is an engineer who build professional feed for ESA
and others. He designed a feed for QO-100 and build now a prototype. More
details on his webside. (In german, but you will see some great pictures,
who give you an idea about the details) https://rfantennas.wordpress.com/

Hi

Im using a dual feed from DC5GY info@????????????.??

There is also a similar feed in the AMSAT-DL shop

https://shop.amsat-dl.org/
to change pol simply turn the feed by 90 degrees.

Dear All,

Just to share my excitement.

Succeeded to get get nice ATV images from QO-100 today, great first this
side of the world has not ATV terrestial operations in 3B8.

This bird is really nice, enabling a lot of experimentations such as ATV,
broadband, narrowband, emergency com etc.. +27/7 availability.

Hi,

I'm using an Icom IC-9100 and the RIT control is almost useless as it
changes frequency very slowly.  To change 1 KHz takes about 15 seconds, a
lifetime on a pass.  In other words if a station calls me and they are a
KHz off, then they will be off the air before I can get the RIT set.

I'm running SatPC32 v 12.8d.  The manual implies that there are Downlink
adjustments when the V+ mode is turned on, but I only see uplink
adjustments to the right of the frequency display that can either be moused
up/down, or respond to the +/- keys.

Perhaps there is something else that would open Downlink adjustment to the
left of the display?  Or maybe other keys that adjust the Downlink?

73, Bob, WB4SON

Bob,

Open the CAT option on the top bar.  Inside you will find to adjustment
girds, one of RX and one for TX.  I think that will accomplish what you are
trying to do.  On my IC-901H is use the RIT control which is good for samll
cahnges.  If more than that I just retune my VFO to their frequency.

John

Hi,

how many countries are QRV  via QO100 now?
Anyone have statistic already ;)
And how many countries inside circle are not allowed to transmit over QO100?
For WAC only NA missing right?

Need help with  Set up instructions for HRD satellite tracking.
got basic tracking working  and rotor with single radio.

HRD tech got second radio working for uplink.
Lost all after shutting down the programs. How do I get the second radio to
work for uplink and how do I either save the profiles or a checklist for
startup!
I want to start using HRD and log sat  contacts.

My station is FT817 downlink
                     IC 7100 uplink.
                     ERC AZ/EL rotor

Normally use SAT 32.

Thanks

I am having trouble getting my TX frequency control using CAT.  When I first
turn on CAT, the frequency?s that are listed for a particular SSB sat do
transfer to the radio (downlink and uplink).  When I use the CAT to adjust
TX frequency, nothing happens. When I use the CAT to adjust the receive
frequency, the radio does change to the new frequency.  However, there is no
corresponding TX change.

Feel like I?m a step away but can?t get it.  Is it the labeling of a VFO in
my uplink on the radio itself?  Feel free to contact me off board in case
this is a duplicate post that I missed over recent weeks.

SSTV Sig's from ISS on 145.800 were quite loud this afternoon. SNRs we're
as great as 50 dB with either an Arrow J_Pole or an M2 Eggbeater up only 7
feet.

Rx is a Fucube Pro+ using SDR Console v3.0.5

Noise floor with 12 kHz bandwidth was -97 dBm, and signals were
consistently better than -65 dBm, peaking -44 dBm at times.

Pix Quality was excellent.

Whatever problem was there last week is not there now. Much appreciated!
