QO-100 Es’hail-2 setup

Here is information about how I decided to make my satellite setup for communication via the geostationary transponder QO-100.
I decided to use following building blocks:

Dish with dual feed protected by a plastic bucket, and Rx/Tx hardware in SS box
transverter udviklet af OZ5N

OK1YC in QSO with G7BTP on QO-100

I use my ICOM IC-7300 as IF on 70MHz
Transverter, PA and PSU is placed close to the feed, as there is no need to loose valuable power in long thin cables.
Result is a good signal on the satelite providing only 5-10W @2,4 GHz.

If You want to listen to QO-100, it’s possible on below WEB SDR site.
