Ready to work OSCAR?

Who's OSCAR? Orbital Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio!

Some satellites can be with hit with just your stock HT, but you may have to plan the perfect pass. The best news is that any licensed Amateur Radio Operator can make a satellite contact. As you plan your contact, keep in mind that the satellite is NOT in a geosynchronous orbit and you'll need to determine when the pass will occur, the UPLINK and DOWNLINK frequencies and account for doppler shift.
