Hi Colin,

do you mean really OBJECT J (NORAD 29491)? 

Between OBJECT B (29480) and OBJECT J is a time difference of 27 minutes. 

I can hear HITSAT from AOS to LOS with OBJECT B. But a correction of -1KHz in CW Mode (FT-736R with small filters) is necessary. 

A second question: the RCS of OBJECT B is 9.0. That seems to me for a Cubesat much too largely.

73, Mike
