Few things in the hobby are more exciting than talking to the world with an HT. D-STAR, DMR, IRLP and Echolink have made this possible via internet connectivity but you can also do it directly, via satellite.

Working the heavens is easier than you might think. Here is a great reourse to get you started.

Work-Sat.com – One of the best all around websites for amateur satellite enthusiasts. If amateur radio icons like Bob Heil, K9EID and Gordon West, WB6NOA recommend it, you know it’s good.

The site is hosted by Clint Bradford, K6LCS, who is also a good guy to know if you need help programming your rig.
