DL3RTL can often be heard on es'hail 2 satellite (QO-100, 26° east) as well as on LEO satellites in stationary and portable operation.
Transmission power of DL3RTL/p in portable operation is 2 watts and with DL3RTL at home 10 to 20 watts.
stationary ground station
Yaesu FT-817 with a modified microphone (AGC MAX9814), transverter and power amplifier from SG labs with 2 to 20 watts PEP and an indoor 80 cm offset dish from Fuba on a tripod. At the moment I use a POTY feed.
For the downlink I use the same dish with an Octagon LNB, a SDR dongle from Nooelec and the software SRD console or a webSDR for very week signals.
