News: Just launched, AO-91 will be a great bird

Post by vk6hgr » Wed Nov 22, 2017 12:05 pm

AO-91 is an FM repeater satellite with a strong 2 meter downlink (receivable with a rubber duck) and an incredibly sensitive receive system on the 70 cm uplink. There are reports of people getting into the bird using a handheld inside a house. That is incredible. This will likely become another “Easy Sat” like AO-51 was. It’s currently being tested by AMSAT-NA but it will be open for general use very soon.
