Work the AO91 amateur radio satellite with cheap handheld transceivers

Using two cheap Chinese handhelds (Baofeng UV82) to work through the AO91 amateur satellite. Their performance is marginal for this application. But if you pick a high pass, operate out in the open and choose a time when there’s not many others on then you may make contacts.

Don’t have a Baofeng? Order a UV82 like mine from here:
