An interesting way to collect some extra points and experience for the upcoming ARRL Field Day is to contact the wide variety of amateur/ham radio satellites available for this event.
If you don't have an antenna to do the job, then this simple, inexpensive portable amateur radio satellite antenna may be the answer. The antenna covers both the 2 meter and 70 cm amateur radio bands, and can be used with your HT or dedicated VHF/UHF transceiver.
Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ) takes you step-by-step through the design, construction, tuning, and on-air tests needed to make a fully functional satellite antenna.
