How to Work Amateur Ham Radio Satellite w Baofeng UV5R MFJ on Saudisat S...Post #358


Working satellites with a simple handheld VHF/UHF transceiver is loads of fun, especially if you can do it without spending a lot of money. David Mercado (KK4MND) shows how he made contact with the popular SaudiSat SO-50 with just an inexpensive Baofeng UV5R and a MFJ Dual Band Antenna from Amazon. You don't need a lot of space to set up a temporary antenna for these low earth orbit birds. Have fun! For the latest in Amateur Radio news and events, please visit the blog sidebars.
