Satellite operation:

VP2MKV will operate FO-29 only on selected passes. We will attempt the long hops to the edges of coverage if the equipment performs well at low elevations and obstructions allow. We will attempt to post passes we plan to work 24 hours in advance on amsat-bb. The uplink frequency will be 145.925 and we will tune our downlink for stations calling. The location is 16.776924N 62.214474W in grid FK86vs. Equipment is an ICOM 910H and Arrow antenna. Uplink power will be about 20W. Stations are asked to work us only once on the satellite. If we respond with your call you are in the log. We will also attempt to post a list of stations worked to amsat-bb daily.
