Congratulations to the HITSAT team!

I copied the CW beacon from 22:42 at ~437.280, 22:44 at 274.3 (just after 
time of closest approach), and 22:45:45 at 268.2. I was busy pointing and 
tuning, so didn't get any of the telemetry, and Mixw didn't either. There is 
a bit of a gap between transmissions which makes tuning and pointing by hand 
a bit tough, especially with no keps ;-)

The signal was quite strong at times, up to s9 or so on a M2 30cp and 
Landwehr preamp.

Looking forward to 1200 baud data from this satellite hopefully.
