Hello All,

I would
like to inform to all, one more surprise by AO-7. Yesterday ( Orbit: 58267 -
16/06/2009 - 20:15:22 UTC) I heard the station of Andre, ZS2BK, in cw, via AO-7 in
GI84ow. The distance is 4805 miles
(7694 km).
Congratullations Andre. A little more than the contact ( ssb ) that was made
with Jean-Jacques, ON7EQ. According to Roland, PY4ZBZ, the area of coverage of
AO7 is approximately  7,904 Km. 
The contacts are close to the limit of A0-7. 
I hope soon keep in cw (or perhaps
ssb ) contact with Andre and are open to any Sked way AO-7 or another
satellite. Thanks all .


recording began at 20:14:47 (UTC) and 20:15:22 (UTC) heard the first signal cw,
in the frequency of 145.940 MHz, the last sign I heard 20:15:52 UTC.

the rx audio was added in youtube:
