Work the AO91 amateur radio satellite with cheap handheld transceivers. Post 1988.

You don't need expensive equipment to work some of the amateur radio satellites, including the AO91.

Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE) shows us how two inexpensive Chinese handheld transceivers (Baofeng UV-82) can be used to access this relatively new ham radio satellite.

Peter readily admits that this kind of contact will be at times difficult, owing to the compromise antenna being used in this test.  But, you will be able to make some interesting contacts despite the antenna limitations.

If you use one of the backpack VHF antennas described in the two previous posts, your results should be much improved.
