Congratulations Robert! Keep promoting this to make it an ANNUAL
EVENT!! With the same callsign...
Yes, there are photos in Marty Davidson's SATELLITE EXPERIMENTERS
HANDBOOK, first two versions...I can send you a photo if you cannot
locate one there...
The actual backup of OSCAR 1 now resides in the Hall of Satellites
Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
I make this appeal now to anyone that resides in the area, and can
take an actual photo of it, please send it to Robert..
It would certainly be much better than my duplicating it from the
musty pictures in the HANDBOOK...
I also make an appeal to all interested amateur satellite operators
around the world to give Robert any assistance you can.
GO FOR IT ROBERT!!
I know I am prejudiced, but in my 70 years experience it is the
high spot in the entire gamut of procedures we enjoy...
And must be preserved...
