Dear satellite enthusiast and DXers
The 3W6C-Team will activate Côn Có Island (AS-185) on satellite from
April 10 to18. The crew use a FT-897 TRX with homebrewed
"Easysat"-antenna for 2m and 70cm and a homebrewed 10m crossdipol.
Following satellite will be use:
(*first priority - not all overflights and sats will be use)
Please note, that only AO-07 will be activate in SBB/CW-mode. All other
satellite are use in FM-mode.
The main areas in the Foodprint are: East-Asia, Japan, China, India,
Australia and east part of Russia. If possible, so the 3W6C-Team will
use some DX-Windows to near East and west part of Russia.
The main-operator for Satellite is HB9BXE, Hans-Peter. Hans-Peter don't
use a CAT-Interface for doppler correction. The equipment is in full
manual use. It is important to know, that Hans-Peter don't hear his own
downlink. For AO-07, he made no doppler correction in the uplink.
Hans-Peter will search some signals +/- 5kHz arround the
downlinkfrequency. (quasi splitmode like shortwave).
Is there a pileup on the sat, please use only callsign, signalstrenght
All Crewmembers are primary shortwave operators. So please be patient,
if they have some troubles with the sat-operation.
For additional information and operating-plan, please contact the 3W6C

We still search Pilot-Station for coordinate the activities from
