here are the recommended frequency programs for some of the more
popular FM Amateur Radio Satellites. Included with each frequency
plan, is the web address / link to the particular satellites information
page. All of these satellites have varied schedules as to when and
what mode they will be in operation. It’s always good to check
these schedules out before you go out to “work the birds!”

this thing with the 74.4 Hz tone?
That actually turns the radios in the satellite on! In the
rare event that SO-50 comes over the horizon, and no traffic is
heard, transmit this tone for about 2 seconds. This will turn
the radios on. If there is no traffic detected for ten minutes,
the radios will shut off. This saves battery power.
