          welcome Alonza

          if you have a outdoor antenna for VHF/UFH on the ((1a try listening for the ISS ( international space station) 437.800Mhz FM

          if you look at https://www.n2yo.com/satellite/?s=25544#results for information on times look at https://www.n2yo.com/passes/?s=25544 so long as max elevation is above about 40 degrees you should hear some QSO’s when it is overhead

          as the ISS approaches its frequency will be 6-9Khz higher, and once its passed overhead it will be 6-9Khz lower due to dopler shift

          you can even pick it up on a little Baofeng UV5r handheld, which is fun to listen as you watch it go overhead if its a visible pass on a clear evening

          other fun digital modes are PSK31, RTTY and olivia, all of which can be found in the FLDigi software have a look at https://www.qsl.net/m0pwx/modes-and-freq.htm
