Hi Auke and Mineo,
I offered assistance from AMSAT-NA Operations several months ago, suggesting
we could enable the satellite while over North America as well. I received
no reply. Perhaps it is a language issue? If anyone has contacts within
JAMSAT or JARL that can assist, please contact me directly at
ko4ma at amsat.org .
