    GB2RS News available on QO-100 satellite from this Sunday

    Posted: 30 Apr 2021 02:55 PM PDT https://amsat-uk.org/2021/04/30/gb2rs-news-on-qo-100/

    The RSGB has announced that their popular weekly GB2RS news broadcast will
    now be available via the QO-100 amateur radio transponder on the
    geostationary satellite Eshail-2.

    QO-100 provides continuous coverage from eastern Brazil to as far west as Thailand. There are two amateur transponders, one for Narrowband modes such
    as SSB and FT8 and the other for digital amateur television (DATV).

    The RSGB website says:

    GB2RS can now also be heard via the QO-100 amateur radio satellite. The transmission is provided by Keith, GU6EFB at 0800UTC, using upper sideband
    on 10489.900 MHz, which is in the mixed-mode section of the narrowband transponder. QO-100 is a geostationary satellite with a footprint that
    covers Europe, Africa and India, so this news bulletin is a
    specially-adapted international version. The RSGB would like to thank
    AMSAT-DL for their kind cooperation in making this broadcast possible.

    If you do not have 10 GHz receive capability you can still listen to the broadcast on the AMSAT-UK and BATC WebSDR located at Goonhilly, see
