Amateur Radio Satellite 🛰️

M0YKS Satellite Earth Station 📡 The amateur Radio hobby has so much to offer and can take you to places you cannot ever go to in person. Yes I am referring to space and in particular the International Space Station. The past couple of weeks have provided some great late evening passes from ISS and I have been making the most of the opportunities. My log is full of ISS, Teval SATs, RS-44 SAT, JO-97 SAT and SO-50 SAT contacts. It's been good and my Earth Station is still working well for me.  A quick run down of the equipment that I am using: TX RX - YAESU FT-847 Rotator - YAESU G-5500 Interface - RS-232 COM-232B  USB CAT cable x2 Antenna V: 144-146Mhz Innovantenna 5 element X LFA YAGI  Antenna U: 435-437Mhz  15 elememt  Oscar 437 SAT X YAGI  Software - SATpc32 PC Windows 10 I also use Look4Sat on my Tablet  the satellite band is great fun and the Radio amateurs that you make contact with are really nice people.
