From the indian Ocean, FO-29 is a great satellite accessible with less than 5W and quite a strong downlink also. Large footprint which is quite important for us in the middle of the ocean enabling QSO’s with ZS, VU and Africa in general (unfortunately silent). I made many QSO with FR and ZS (about 10 OM’s) and regularly with ZS2BK (Andre) who is quite active on all the birds.
