Es'Hail 2 (OSCAR 100) Geo Sat available for testing via ARDOP and VARA.

Hi All,

European hams can now test the Es'Hail 2 (OSCAR 100) geostationary commercial satellite at 26 deg East with ARDOP or VARA.
Note that this satellite is below the horizon for U.S. and Canadian hams.
We need one of these geostationary ham transponder platforms for the Americas !


The KC9SGV HF RMS and others are listening for test connections via VARA on 7.101 MHz USB Dial.
VARA works with Winlink Express as the email client.
Please send large files to compare thruput speed.
Monochrome pictures make nice 20K attachments.

VARA is reported to be at least as fast as P3.
