Watch (and hear!) the Delfi-C3 team receive their first signals from their new satellite on April 28, 2008! You might be able to hear this telemetry (downlink) on 145.870 MHz.


Delfi-C3 (DO-64)

UR3CTB and UT3QM make a contact through VO-52. VO-52 suffered a battery failure in July, 2014 - and is no longer functioning for the amateur radio community.


Watch the Scouts make contacts through SO-50 on February 2, 2013. And here’s a brief contact with a Scout group in September, 2014.

ISS Packet

Doug Cook KD5PDN has written a couple articles for QST Magazine. Here’s a video of him with his Scouts working the ISS on packet - with a TAPE MEASURE BEAM!

You can monitor the ISS’ packet frequency of 145.825 with YOUR handheld and a better antenna!

AMSAT-UK - a great source for satellite news!

A ‘golden oldie” video: working a pass of dear, now-departed AO-51 out in the parking lot at the 2010 Pacificon Convention in San Ramon, CA . My SRO satellite presentation was so well-received in 2010, that Pacificon asked me to come back in 2011 and perform it twice - again to SRO audiences. Had a blast! Pacificon is a great amateur radio convention - one of the best in the nation.

And from the Palm Springs HamFest 2014, quick contacts with Canada and Arizona on SO-50 ... that’s two COUNTRIES worked in less than a minute!

And here’s a little very UN-scientific experiment with AO-73:

Can one hear a 30mW AM station from about 500 miles away

with an FM handheld and tape measure beam???

On June 28-29, 2014, amateur radio operators across North America were treated to FM voice contacts with Commander Wiseman from the ISS!
