RaDAROPS Planning – 2016 April the 2nd


My ops planning is guided by suitable satellite passes. After doing tests with SO-50 the past weekend I’d really like SatComms to be part of the challenge again, it’s been a while. Unfortunately not many other hams in range are satellite active anymore. Kieth, ZS6TW may be able to save the day.

Local times in South Africa are UTC + 2

06:00 – 08:00 Get ready for the ops, breakfast etc.

08:00 – 12:00 Field moving operations.
