K6LCS: "Most hams already have the necessary equipment!"
Getting started with ham satellites is easier than you may think! And everything you need is right here to access FM voice satellites, monitor the ISS, and more. WELCOME to the "after-presentation support site!"
Students talk to an orbiting astronaut!
Can you talk to the ISS with just 2 Watts?
An HT with antenna improvement can get you in to the world of FM satellites! It is best to work "full-duplex" - more about that throughout the site.
Think a ninety-minute, informative and FUN presentation on working the satellites would be appropriate for YOUR club? .
On the 2m side of things, you really do not need to worry about the Doppler phenomenon. But on the 440 side - you do need to compensate!
Need help? I check for messages to 909-999-7287 around 7PM Pacific.
All proceeds are forwarded to
in Riverside, CA.

Each of my presentations is customized for my audiences - I have never given the same show twice! But here is how YOU can make an effective satellite presentation.
