Another very strong UO-11 pass here this evening.  (0909 to 0922 utc, 60
deg)  The signal became noisy with rapid fading just after UO-11 went into
eclipse at around 0919 but signals continued but gradually became weaker and
the fades deeper until I lost the signal in the noise about 1 minute before
LOS. I recorded the pass.

I have received two reports from Keith N4ZQ (EL88ob) that he has heard
UO-11 on 19 November at 13:33 - 13:43, and on 22 November  at 13:02 UTC.

He has sent me a WAV file of the second pass.  Unfortunately, it's a 
very low elevation pass, and probably will be difficult to decode, as it 
contains a lot of noise.  However it's definitely UO-11.

I'll be interested in receiving any other reports.  The frequency is 
145.826 MHz. Mode is FM.  Further details are on my OLD website 
www.users.zetnet.co.uk/clivew    There is an audio clip to help identify 
the satellite.

Please e-mail me via the AMSAT reflector, or post to this bulletin board.
