My neighbor had a WWII ARC-5 receiver and I remember going over to his house
to listen to it.  It went "beep, beep, beep..."  I wouldn't have known what
telemetry was then.

I have been contacted by a reporter that will be doing a story soon on
50th anniversary of the launch of Sputnik 1(October 4th).  He would like
try and locate any hams that may have actually successfully attempted to

listen for the Sputnik.  Forgive my satellite ignorance here, but since 
Sputnik is not a ham sat, I am assuming it still put out some telemetry
other signals that may have been capable of being received by either
or shortwave radios?

If you, or someone you know, did this please let me know and I will hook
up with said reporter.

Please feel free to forward this request to any specific reflectors or
lists that you may be part of.
