I’ve had an idea to make some new videos about my experiences in the amateur satellite world for a while.
One idea was to demonstrate how to work my favorite satellite FO-29 using a single VFO multimode transceiver. In my case, I chose the Yaesu FT-817 because it’s one of the most popular portable radios in the world today.
Combined with an Arrow or Elk antenna, almost anyone can take an FT-817 with them on their travels or operating from the backyard.
This is my first revision of the FT-817 video. I’d be glad to field any questions from inquiring minds.
