I’ve recently got back into working some of the “easy-sats” like AO-91 and AO-92 and have had a lot of fun. I use an Motorola XTS-5000 for uplink on UHF and either an Yaesu FT-817 or FT-60 as the VHF receiver depending on which is charged. Antenna wise, I use an arrow antenna, which seems to work extremely well.
I’ve had some luck copying FO-29 but I can’t seem to get into it. We’ll keep trying!
