Digital Mobile Radio Hotspots May Be Interfering with Satellite Uplinks


This week, AMSAT News Service (ANS) cited an August 27 report from AMSAT Vice President-Operations Drew Glasbrenner, KO4MA, saying that a digital mobile radio (DMR) signal has been interfering with the AO-92 (Fox-1D) satellite’s 435.35 MHz uplink frequency.

What is an Activation?

In ham radio, you can qualify for an award for just about anything. Awards for things like Worked All States (WAS) or worked all 488 grid squares in the continental US (MMFA) or worked all counties, etc. Some people are driven to wallpaper their shack with these awards.....others really don't care.

Oglala Lakota county has 2 ham radio operators living there. One of the ham's has a Technician's license that is about to expire. Chances are, most folks have never had an opportunity to make contact with somebody living in Oglala Lakota county using ham radio.
