Hi  James, W8ISS

The right place to find all information about the above older satellites is
"The Satellite Experimenters Handbook" by Martin Davidoff, K2UBC
ARRL Order No 3185 2nd Edition $20,00 in USA
Appendix A "Radio Amateur Satellite History : Dates and Frequencies"

AO-6 [-] i.e. OSCAR-6 launched Oct 15  1972 with a mode-A transponder
and a 435.100 MHz beacon was my first amateur communication satellite
.........nice to remember !
