    Check out this article: Brazilians using 2 meter radios, converting them to work around 300mhz and tapping into the U.S. Navy's satellites for remote communications.

    It says you can find the parts & instructions on how to convert the 2m rig online. I'm sure it won't take someone here too long to find it, but don't try this in the U.S. unless you like federal prison a lot.

    The Navy's not too happy about it....

    If this is even real, I'm sure the loophole will be closed quickly enough. You would think all military communications satellites are encripted access.
