HAM Satellites

sdrconsole2

Sometime I am on the air via low orbit satellites like the CubeSats. The receiver is a FUNcube Dongle Pro+ with SDRConsole software and for transmitting I use the Icom IC-7000 in SSB or FM. The SDRConsole software has a build in satellite tracker and works perfectly with the FUNcube dongle.

The antennas are set up in the garden. I am using a turnstile for 2 meters and a M² Eggbeater for 70 cm both on a 1,5m camping mast. I am using maximal 8w EIRP and the system works fine at high elevation angles.
