Hi Tim,

The vertical is somewhat a limitation (compared to for example an
arrow), signals will be a bit weaker. But: it is usable for sure!
The HF wire is great: you can receive for example AO07 with it
(downlink 10 meters), and that is just awesome.

All satellites, frequencies, etc.

That is a one page overview of all satellites. The best there is.

Reports on Cubesats (and a bit more): http://www.dk3wn.info/p/
Why Cubesats: there are a lot, you can use them to test your system.

Reports on amateur satellites: http://www.amsat.org/status/

When ISS is back with packet, you should be able to hear that on your
vertical for sure.

Let us know what you can hear and what not, the group will help you.

Welcome & enjoy !

HI Folks;


Reading the thread on receiving the weather satellites has sparked a
in me. I would like to be able to capture the telemetry and beacons
amateur satellites -- Ive got a 2m/440 vertical and an HF wire. An
706mk IIG and a computer running kubuntu linux. Any input or
would be most appreciated
