Hi! We have another attempt at the D-Star ONE satellite in orbit, after a successful launch from Russia. There are some reports that the satellite's beacon may be active over North America this evening, and its parrot repeater may also be active. This satellite does not have a normal repeater that simultaneously retransmits what it hears on its uplink. It is a "parrot" - recording on the uplink, and then transmitting what it heard on its downlink. For most radios capable of D-Star operations, this will mean a group of memory channels will need to be programmed. The memory channels will compensate for Doppler on both the uplink and downlink. Assuming the nominal frequencies are as published - uplink on 437.325 MHz, downlink on 435.525 MHz - this chart can be used as a guide for programming the memory channels... Make sure the frequencies are in D-Star mode, not FM. Radios will either need the downlink (RX) and uplink (TX) frequencies in each of the memory channels, or the downlink and offset size. Keep in mind that there will probably be points in each pass where these memories won't work, since most D-Star radios won't tune in steps smaller than 5 kHz. Here's hoping the third time for D-Star ONE is successful... 73!
