Which are the "Easy" Satellites?

The ISS crossband repeater is UP! 145.990 67.0 UPlink, 437.800 DOWNlink! (Frequency chart on Home Page.) SO-50 is fairly easy to work. But AO-91 and AO-92 with their 2M DOWNlinks are easier! You may find AO-92 turning OFF when approaching eclipse: The command team is working on a battery issue (09/2020). AO-92 switches to a 1.2GHz UPlink once a week, and also has other experiments on board. Watch AMSAT-NA's Twitter Feed for announcements of AO-92 mode changes. It is best that you work these satellites in "full duplex" mode - if possible - and monitor the DOWNlinks as you transmit.

There are also occasional SSTV projects from the ISS on 145.800 MHz.

Receiving ISS SSTV images can be as simple as holding your HT up to your smartphone equipped with a $3 app! Info right here.

Once you've mastered the "easy" sats, there are several SSB / CW transponder sats. Click here for "getting started" information.
