(Gokigen ikaga desuka?)
I am not up to speed with the new satellites however
I was able to copy portions of transmissions from
two birds this evening. My QTH is Honolulu.
My rig; A Yaesu VX-7R with Arrow antenna.
I used the keps given for PRISM and they seemed
accurate as the first signal came in as
predicted at 1131Z (1/23/09)
Max. elev. for both satellites approx. 30 deg. W.
Satellite 1 (PRISM?):
Satellite 2: (1136Z: same elev)
580 noise 609x noise -21088 ???
hell? noise eisiskks-1
Not much to go on but I think two
Satellites are alive and doing well.
I suffered polarity problems with
both satellites but I am sure things
will get better!!
Best to track one at a time!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEARS TO ALL
And Congratuations to all the TEAMS
involved in making this happen.
