QED on the Birds!

Well,

Following my last post here, I've managed to complete my first Satellite QSO.

I'm using SatPC32 to control the antennas and also the Radio:


My first QSO was with RN6MA in LN06uo - Thanks Victor!

We were using the XW-2A satellite; uplink on 435 MHz and downlink on 145 MHz.


So much to learn!

Here's a video of the antennas in action:


And here a quick video of the IC-9100 receiving the telemetary beacon from XW-2A showing the auto doppler tuning.


Here's Florrie the Ham cat enjoying some sunshine:
