New "BIRD" In The Air

AO-91 is an FM repeater [1] 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.

  1. That's fantastic .... AO51 & SO50 were fun machines but you had to be right on them with a yagi to hear or transmit. Should be fun if it is over us on FD.
