    I currently only have equipment to work FM satellites at the moment, but it can still be a lot of fun. One of the coolest sat ops I ever did was while camping on Cape Cod last summer. SO-50 was my metric for success at the time, since it was the only bird I’d ever successfully worked. I brought along a 70cm Yagi (cushcraft a440s), a dual band whip antenna for an HT and two separate handhelds. Using the UHF beam for recieve and the tilted whip method for transmit on VHF, I was able to successfully work two stations – it definitely impressed my two non-ham friends, which is (to me) one of the coolest parts of amateur radio. You get to show off the capability of such simple setups and methods of operating.
