Satellites

There are a variety of HAM Satellites that pass overhead daily. 
 
AO-27    
 
AMRAD-OSCAR 27   http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/satellites/satInfo.php?satID=7  AO-27 transmits with a power output of 0.5 W into a quarter-wavelength whip antenna.
 

SO-50    
 
Saudi-OSCAR 50      http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/satellites/satInfo.php?satID=4  SO-50 is approximately 3 dB lower, into a quarter-wavelength whip canted inward at a 45-degree angle.  SO-50 employs tone squelch (CTCSS) on its uplink, so set your transmitter for a tone of 67 Hz (also known as PL XZ). When it’s turned on, no CTCSS tone is required to access AO-27.
