    ARRL instructor and AMSAT-NA Ambassador Clint Bradford, K6LCS, Will be presenting his "Working Amateur Satellites With Your HT” session at the Saturday, August 15, 2020 meeting of the Team Radio GA in southeast Georgia. The session will begin at 9AM Georgia time.

    Team Radio GA (TRGA) is a growing ARES / EmComm group, whose region covers the ARRL’s District 8 in Georgia. Led by Jerome Erickson
    KK1JE, TRGA was featured in the July, 2020 issue of the ARRL Georgia Section’s newsletter, “Georgia on My Mind.”

    The groups Jerome has organized focus on digital and emergency communications. Refreshingly, Jerome told the newsletter editor, “I believe that the privilege to operate on the many frequencies we are
    granted we should make an effort to give back to our communities through radio communications.”

    Clint K6LCS has made it his mission in his amateur radio life to show Hams that they really can work a few FM voice satellites with equipment they probably already own. To that end, he has given his presentation more than 100 times to audiences who genuinely desire to expand their ham experience - to clubs, conventions, and hamfests in North America
    and Canada.

    An attendee of Clint’s session at the club a couple years ago wrote:

    "K6LCS gave a fantastic presentation on amateur satellites. It was most informative and entertaining. Clint's passion for the subject was evident, and I would imagine that the club members individually and or in a group will be eager to try satellite contacts in the near future."

    “We will be using Zoom Video Communications to conduct our session,” Clint advises. “I would much rather be in a room, LIVE, with my audience, but it’s cheaper with Zoom than air fare to Savannah's International Airport … “

    Clint always welcomes questions before his presentations. Leave him a voicemail at (909) 999-SATS or send email to: k6lcs@ham-sat.info

    Can you better explain when and how to use multiple frequencies to assist with doppler shift. Is it only used for Rx or is also used with Tx.
    I use low watts, 5wt or less to transmit and I never hit a bird until it is almost over head.

    Check out the frequency chart at http://www.work-sat.com.

    For working "portable," we only have to really consider the Doppler phenomenon on the 440 side of things. On a decent pass, there is only about a +/- 3 kHZ deviation in frequency on 2m ... but a whopping +/- 9kHZ deviation on 440!

    If you can use two radios - one for RX with an earpiece and a second to transmit - you will be able to hear yourself coming through the satellite. That is termed, "full-duplex."
