Heard this evening so far on V/S:

I made an interesting recording of the S band transmitter last pass with 
WinRad and my SDR-IQ. The signal peaks about 45 db above the noise! This is 
with a 3 ft dish with a patch feed, preamp at the feed, and keps.it 
downconverter to a hamtronics converter to the -IQ.

I'll make the recording available to anyone who'd like it, and the software 
to play it is available for free at http://www.winrad.org/ . The catch is it 
is about 530Mb. Maybe someone has a website they would put it on? Otherwise 
if you want it, send me a SASE and blank CD or DVD and I'll make a copy for
