Whatever Jerry but he was interfering. He NEVER did have a conversation.  All I saw was about 10 different times he would end up on the same frequency as the station calling CQ.  Had several stations call him but he never would answer.

Seems like other people can complain but when someone else complains just once then there must be a reason for the error.

My apologies and I’ll not complain or express my concerns on the reflector again.
Heck, in fact, I may not even get back on the reflector if others seem to know it all.

thanks for your input.

He may be having a tracking problem with his software. If my settings are standard (12050 or whatever) I have to change them to (13000 something) and then I'm on same frequency as station I'm calling.

P43 may have settings problem and not know it.

Signals are dwindling a bit and I do know that we do not all have the same propagation!!

I was just getting on and letting people know just in case, just like you do my friend.

Really interesting stuff for antenna designs

Rick - N7WE
 

There is some really interesting stuff going with antenna designs - merging optics with conventional RF technology.

"Technically, the antenna transmission draws upon a first-of-its-kind beam-forming optical lens engineered to send precise beams to several differently placed satellites at the same time, without using the entire circuitry of the system. While phased array antennas continue to be highly effective and widely operational, Billman explained that the new multi-beam antenna is quite different in that it can sustain its power and signal fidelity across multiple bands at the same time. Phased array antennas, Billman said, not only rely upon a wider aperture which consumes more of the circuitry and electrical power, but decrease in power and effectiveness when broken into two beams simultaneously. Whereas the optical lenses, designed to empower the single antenna functionality, do not need to all operate at the same time. Several different beam transmissions can connect with several satellites at once; the patented beam-forming system can connect satellites of different sizes, operating at various altitudes within different orbits. Phased arrays also, by contrast, require a larger form factor which consumes more real estate, and electrical power, on a surface ship. Also, when it comes to warfare operational resiliency, several more narrowly configured, yet dispersed, electronic signals emit a lower and less detectable signature than larger, phased array emissions."

You can read the compete articles here. 1st LINK   And more info here 2nd LINK  

The Navy is already testing some of these new antennas for combat ships that will allow simultaneous multiple links over multiple bands on mulitple satellites.  And these optical antennas are supposed to me much more stealthy than the current large multiple phased arrays currently used for onboard satellite communications.  Wonder if this tech can give a rebirth to AMSAT?  Radio keeps evolving!

Well , it looks like I jumped the gun, put the horse before the cart etc

From the replies I've had so far; it looks like it was just a good idea

but not going to work as planned. I'll put the idea on the back burner

and maybe, it'll work at a different time.

Thanks for the feed back
