4M-LXS Satellite

Hi All...

Was just looking at a Satellite list that are currently active..... and noticed that the Sat. 4M-LXS was on the list. This is the one launched a year or so back operating using WSJT-JT65B.

Will update Orbitron....but is it still showing on the maps..?

Or is it just an error...?

Hi All... Yes Robert you are right....I am not saying there is no place for SSB on 30m....I am saying not smack in the middle of the digital modes segment...

Re: 30m SSB

HI all.... Chill pill.......Its called having some respect for what others are doing... interfering with others....better believe it, they were... 30m is generally a weak signal band....any signals like SSB in the wrong place mess up quite a bit... BUT...let me get back to my original comment above....

Has anyone tested how wide the audio bandwidth is if tapping prior to audio filtering/amp...? (70 cm radio )
