Re: AOR/Frequencies

Q: Could I receive with the new AR5000 the Molnya signals and other
satellites in UHF? Where to get the exact frequencies on this low flying
satellites and the times over pass-overs? Where to buy the AR5000 at the
lowest price and can I control this receiver by a pc?

Yes, the 5000 covers all this frequencies (up to 2.6 GHz). A suitable and
simple program could be HRS which you can obtain at
http://www.prism.gatech.edu/~gt3681c/hrs.html (thanks to the Hearsat-people
for the info). It calculetes all passovers and gives you the correct
frequencies, even on very strange satellites.
You should buy the AR5000 from a official dealer, inorder to get a proper
service. For Germany try Boger-Funk or VTH. Both offer quite a lot of
modifications and additional features.
A very fine control-software would be Hawk-5000. Its coming from AOR-UK
(search for the correct homepage).
