Italian radio ham KF5KDP in orbit in the ISS

VolareL'atronauta italiano Luca Parmitano KF5KDP, è partito martedì 28 maggio alle 20:31 UTC dal Cosmodromo di Baikonur verso la Stazione Spaziale Internazionale con la Soyuz TMA-09M, dopo un breve inseguimento di cinque ore e 39 minuti, secondo le nuove modalità di attracco che non costringono più gli astronauti a restare prigionieri nella Soyuz per due giorni: Hha attraccato la la ISS e si è ricongiunto con l'equipaggio della ISS che era in attesa dell'arrivo dei nuovi astronauti.

La missione di Parmitano ha il nome "Volare" ed ha in previsione tre uscite all'esterno della Stazione Spaziale per esperimenti inerenti alla missione stessa.

Nelle foto si possono vedere il simbolo della missione e Parmitano con la tuta che indosserà nelle tre uscite all'esterno della ISS.

The Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano KF5KDP, started Tuesday May 28 at 20:31 UTC from Baikonur Cosmodrome to the International Space Station with the Soyuz TMA-09M, after a short chase of five hours and 39 minutes, according to the new docking mode that do not force more astronauts to remain prisoners in the Soyuz for two days: He has docked to the ISS and was reunited with the crew of the ISS that was awaiting the arrival of the new astronauts.

The mission of Parmitano has the name "Volare" and has three exits in anticipation outside the Space Station for experiments related to the mission itself.

In the pictures you can see the symbol of the mission and Parmitano with the suit he will wear in three outings outside of the ISS.

FO-29 Satellite Turns 20: 1996-2016 PDF Stampa E-mail

Rating 2.5/5 (14 votes)


It's been 20 years since the Fuji-OSCAR 29 (FO-29) satellite launched on August 17, 1996, from Tanegashima Space Center. Its 100-kHz-wide analog Mode V/U transponder continues to serve the Amateur Satellite community, although its packet BBS and digitalker no longer function.
With an apogee of 1323 kilometers, FO-29 provides satellite operators with excellent DX opportunities every few months. Intercontinental contacts are regularly reported, including contacts between Japan and Alaska and between North America and Europe. While the theoretical maximum range at apogee is 7502 kilometers, the transponder's excellent sensitivity and solid 1 W downlink signal allow that distance to be stretched when conditions are right. The longest distance covered via FO-29 was an unscheduled 7599.959 kilometer (approximately 4712 mile) contact on August 27, 2015, between Dave Swanson, KG5CCI, of Little Rock, Arkansas (on Shinnal Mountain in EM34), and Christophe Lucas, F4CQA, in Trouy, France (NJ17). Swanson answered F4CQA's CQ.
The 2015 K1N DXpedition to Navassa Island made 29 contacts during two passes of FO-29, activating that extremely rare DX entity on satellite for the first time since 1993, when Don Roland, VE1AOE, reported logging between 400 and 500 contacts as part of the W5IJU DXpedition to Navassa -- making the bulk of them on AO-13.FO-29 remains the most widely used linear transponder satellite and an ideal starting point for beginners.
Uplink for the mode V/U (J) inverting linear transponder is from 145,900 to 146,000 MHz, SSB or CW.

The downlink is 435,800 to 435,900 MHz. The CW beacon transmits on 435,795 MHz.
JARL offers an award for confirmed QSOs with 10 different stations via FO-29. -- Thanks to AMSAT News Service.
