AMSAT Education:

We just heard the 465.000 MHz Iranian OMID satellite loud and
clear.  It was 20 seconds on and then off, on a 2 minute cycle.
Tune FM.  Object number is 33506.  Passes are mid morning to mid
evening in the mid northern latitudes local time.

For what it is worth, here is the list of satellites that we use
in our student satellite lab for tuning in.  The students have
to make the predictions, and then they individually come to the
lab to see if they can hear their chosen satellite.

To our knowledge, these are the working AMSATs.  If we missed
any, let me know.

Our list is on this web page:
