AMSAT-BR QO-100 FT8 QRPp Experiment

AMSAT-BR Logo and Dish AntennaAMSAT-Brazil is organizing a reverse beacon FT8 QRPp experiment/contest via the QO-100 geostationary amateur radio transponder.

The first 10 spotted stations with lower SNR will receive a Certificate of Accomplishment.The dead line will be May 1st 2020. To qualify, the SNR must be lower than -18 dB (as measured by the ft8 decoder). The receiver will be active on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 UTC to 24:00 UTC and will be tuned to 10.489540 GHz with a 3.5 kHz bandwidth. All stations calling CQ will be logged.

The objective for the project is to incentive low power experimentation through the QO-100 narrow band transponder. Stations participating in the experiment are welcome to send a brief description of their setup, including information about RF power output, hardware and software setups, antenna type and gain, photos, etc. to the email address
