Re: Double fuji


It certainly does occur in other parts of the world. When operating as
PA3HIL from Amsterdam I worked G8ATE when both fujis were visible to both of
us. Of course the different doppler effects put the downlink signals from
each satellite on different frequencies.

I'm pleased to hear that you are operating on Fuji down under. I tried for a
while after I moved to ZL a year ago, but it was so quiet that I gave up. I
hope to remount my VHF/UHF antennas this weekend (down for repair). If I am
successful, I'll listen out for you. ZL2VAL is also sometimes on Fuji.

Best Wishes

Sil - ZL2CIA (ex PA3HIL)
