OH8FKS

OH8FKS: Passion for satellites!Base station is TS-2000 with a Windom OCF dipole for HF, HB9CV Duoband 2m/70cm and Arrow Antenna II for Satellites.

For satellite portable I use an FT-817 with the Arrow Antenna II. Sometimes I couple my FT-817 with an FT-857 for full duplex.

Working mainly satellites from several locations, home locator KP25ra, occasionally from KP34uf, other locations will be listed here below.

NOTE for SSB satellites. When working /P I’m working half duplex with an FT-817 (2,5W), so please note the following:

  • FO-29: I’ll use fixed TX frequency of 145.960 MHz LSB (no doppler adjustment)
  • AO-7: I’ll use fixed TX frequency of 432.162 MHz LSB (no doppler adjustment)

NOTE for LoTW users: I update QSOs almost immediately, but please make sure to use the right call, with prefix and suffix. E.g. for Svalbard it is JW/OH8FKS/P

NOTE for logging sat QSOs: When logging a satellite QSO, please enter the uplink (TX) frequency as the QSO frequency!
