    Activity exists above 1.2ghz . This is a mobile rover, for contesting on bands up at 10 gigahertz.

    What would I use to operate up this high?

    I've seen some SDR receivers that might go that high, and the DEMI transverters ($$$$), but haven't seen many other options.

    When the 5/10ghz geostationary satellite goes I will hopefully be ready!

    Correct me if I am wrong please, isn't the X-Band used by law enforcement for speed detection in the 10 gig range?

    The IEEE defines the X-band as spanning 8-12 GHz. The allocation of that assigned to Amateur Radio Service is the segment 10-10.5 GHz. Police radars using the X-band are just above that at 10.525 GHz. Consumer automobile radar detectors have been converted to be used as receivers by amateurs (see Feb 1991 73 magazine).

    The 10 GHz segment has long been a very popular amateur microwave band. The first geo-synchronous orbiting amateur satellite, hopefully soon to be launched, is being designed to use 10 GHz as the down link (5 GHz up link).
