Revised QO-100 DATV Bandplan - Please Read

  • Following the extension of the released transponder bandwidth, and the revised beacon parameters, the BATC and AMSAT-DL have revised the bandplan for the transponder with some significant changes.


    The full .pdf is here: Printed Bandplan


    The Wiki page describing the changes is here: BATC Wiki


    and this is how it looks:

  • On Wednesdays (UTC time), experimenters are encouraged to try other modes – perhaps 6 MS using the whole transponder for brief (less than 10 minute) periods. It is essential that users announce their plans on the chat room page, and always monitor it.

    That's almost like You would mention me. Thank You :)


    My only comment, there should be an easily editable page (like wiki) on WB monitor (<div> periodic grabbing from wiki?) where we can announce our next activities. Many like to see 6M test for example, but it requires that for this 5 minutes everybody stop TX. There is no problem doing that at 2 a.m. but also there is no point to do that in that time.
    It would be better to just inform others, that everyone can enjoy this 5 minutes without delays for contacting "that last one not reading chat frequently".


    Also really valuable content like Renny PE1ASH videos should be aired within schedule.
