Satellite Operations

I'm ready to take the next step. I have a set of azimuth and elevation rotators and I even have a 2M beam. I think it is time I get serious about my satellite operations. Not that I don't have fun working the FM birds via my HT and an Arrow Antenna but I think it will be more fun to automate some of it and be able to work from the comfort of my chair inside.

Here is a list of things I need to buy, build, or gather:

  • 2m and 70cm Antennas
  • Antenna Support
  • Software
  • Rotator Control
  • 1.2 GHz
  • 2.4 GHz

I'll try to cover in detail each of these items in later blog entries so I can keep track of what I want to do.
