Everything is set for our Special Event on Wednesday night. Please listen on
the following passes of AO-51 over North America to hear original Sputnik 1
telemetry via AO-51:
October 3, ~2350 to ~2358 UTC
October 4, ~0127 to ~0145 UTC
~0308 to ~0326 UTC
~0452 to ~0503 UTC
>From ~2350 to ~0505 UTC AO-51 will not be available outside of the Sputnik
downlink over North America.
The downlink frequency will be 435.300 plus or minus doppler shift, and the
downlink power will be higher than the normal repeater levels.
There will be a nice QSL certificate available by sending reception reports
and a 9"x12" SASE to 3375 Taper Ave, San Jose, CA 95124, USA. Please allow
several weeks for turnaround time.
I hope everyone enjoys this event, and thanks to all that have helped put it
73, Drew KO4MA
