YES, and if you look around the old posts you will see experiments with a LNB-only. Firtst reported by DJ2QZ from DL0LN, some months ago. +
and now the community is anxious waiting to see
ur showp up on the transponder. everything seems to be well. 73 ROLF +
wie ich schon mal ganz am Anfang schrieb: Dämpfungsglieder, Dämpfungsglieder.
Bei mir waren 40dB nicht schädlich...
Just finished some tests with these antennas.
Conclusion: corner reflector - vertically polarized
just 12 dB weaker than the good old AO-40 antenna.

Mir schwebte auch so etwas vor. Mit DJ5PW trafen wir uns morgens zwischen 06 und 07 auf der.710.
Aber 700 ist leichter zu merken - für die über

stns wkd via QO-100 see below
Assuming the direction to the satellite is correct, 5W and 22dBi should work nicely. So either you don't have 5W or the antenna is not 22dBi.
there is nothing to add...
just use a 65cm dish with G3RUH and you will be happy. There are so many busy contributors here. Rarely active on the xponder
Greetings from Vienna - (portable equipment not ready yet)
after 10 mins of dots you should give a callsign...
the dots are 3dB above noise,
more or less than my suppressed carrier when I am not talking.
What will be the conclusion? Prefer two-way contacts.
February 14th we found that 50mW to a 60cm dish is sufficient for two qsos in cw 539 +
AMSAT USA? Asfar as I know its AMSAT NA.

Yes, no mention about QO-100. More about the cubesats.
But still remember IWI with C-C-rider and many other proposals. Wait and see.
active on QO-100 since the official opening.
with 100mW at the dish: 539 in CW seems that its working...
QRP OR QRO???
Saturday Fe. 16th 17:08
just returned from GHz- Tagung Dorsten and found a real QRP signal: 549 on .571
QRP test 75mw into 95cm dish de PA1SDB Winschoten
At around 11:50 UTC A71A appeared on .710.
DK2ZF was lucky enough to made the QSO number one.
At first Hamid was on the Mike, later DB2OS and DH2VA
They are running 300mW into 2.4m dish . The group will return on mondy.
Well done boys !

Tu ALL for the correct BCN qrg, i have a little offset but it doesnt matter AMATEUR RADIO is EXPERIMENTAL by definition.
And: satellite means DUPLEX since the old OSCARS. You can run and tune simultaneously your own transmission by strength and quality.
And now waiting for the upcoming procedure
LOVELY!!! To hear ths morning the good old sound of AO-10/13/40 PSK telemetry.
Unfortunately i donated my PSK equipment some years ago to a friend...
Also the CW beacon on 489.550 is nice to hear.
THANKS TO THE TEAM DOWN THERE IN DOHA

Hi grandfather Zlatko from grandfather Rolf, yes it was a pleasure to work you from your balcony yesterday at 17:04 UTC. Here a better operating posn. INSIDE and ant outside... Your signal fine so nothing to complain. We will have a lot of fun with the new bird, No. 100 73 Rolf
