CO-55 + FT-817 + Antena 1/4 de onda

VE9QRP escreveu na lista da AMSAT-BB. De salientar que o microsatélite CO-55 emite com potência da ordem dos miliwatts. Vale a pena ler e ver.

I had a chance to do some more listening in on CO-55 using my FT-817 radio and a 1/4 wave ground-plane made of wire and a BNC. Given the number of all-band, all-mode radios that are available now, I think a simple experiment like this could be great fun to many hams, especially those who might fear that satellite operations of any sort are prohibitively expensive. In hopes of illustrating to them and others, I made a short video of the actual reception, to be viewed here:
