I wondered why the reliability of commanding ANDE had gone down
I have been tracking the wrong object!
I am convinced that CELESTRACK has had the names of ANDE MAA and
FCAL swapped. I clearly heard the difference during an overhead
pass. The signals from ANDE were clearly 2 minutes ahead of
where I was tracking... What I thought was ANDE MAA is actually
FCAL and when I pointed at FCAL, if found strong signals on
29667 is REALLY FCAL
29664 is REALLY ANDE MAA
CELESTRACK has had them reversed in its AMATEUR satellite list.
