Only God know if and when a HEO Amateur Satellite will be placed in orbit by
AMSAT-DL is working around P3E wich is a satellite similar to OSCAR-13
using all modes from the VHF to Microwave but there are no money sufficient
to pay for the launch at the moment.
About to work the actual operational satellites the extra expences of
buying a rotator /elevator is recommended while starting the activity you
can use a more simple low cost yagi antenna for 2 m and 70 cm manually
aimed toward the satellite.
