Thanks Tom, you described it correct. Just like an HF DX pileup, but fun nonetheless. I will one day get an all mode VHF/UHF transceiver to get on the other satellites, but also need a different antenna setup unless I run QRP. Any input on running a Yaesu FT 817nd or an 857d on the SSB satellites? I can use the Arrow only with low power because of the duplexer unless I get a different duplexer that can handle more power or do without it completely. Really don't want to put up an extravagant satellite antenna system on the property right now. Maybe in a few years after retirement.
