According to the "Amateur Radio Guy", it doesn't take much to make a fully functional antenna system for working the simple amateur radio satellites.  In this case, a homebrew yagi and a microphone support stand were coupled to a UV5R hand held to make a simple station capable of working several amateur radio satellites. This easy project should give you a taste of what it's like to work amateur radio satellites with gear that "is realy cheap, really simple."
