  Hi all,

  just for the history, last night I was listening for about 2 hours the 
AO-10's beacon-frequency without succes  (I re-installed my 9 El Yagi + 
GasFet preamp - just for that.).

 Nothing heard from AO-10.

  BTW it was a weak carrier on .809, however without any doppler-effect and 
remained there "stable" after the.....  LOS of Satellite !

 So, it is more than obvious that, it iwas just a "manmade" fake signal from 
my area.

 Therefore, it's very easy to think somebody that it has heard the 
Satellite, however was it the satellite?
I wonder also if the last report about AO-10's receiving is confirmed by 
other peoples.

 I was also looking for the original post of IK2MKE, but I can't find it.

Where - when  is posted?  Any additional info is appreciated.

73, Mak SV1BSX

PS:  the last distributed Keplerians of AO-10 are OK ?  according to that 
the AO-10 tonight is "in range" for
Europe  @ + - 23:20 (from my Location AOS:17:46 Z, TCA 21:30 /AZ=86-EL=21,
