Hi Nate

May I kindly recommend Mike, DK3WN, website ?
http://www.dk3wn.info/p/  (daily weblog - IMHO the best there is)
http://www.dk3wn.info/satellites.shtml (satellite index)
http://www.dk3wn.info/sat/afu/sat_beesat.shtml (beesat)

MSK is used for AA-U2 as well.
Mike has a few notes on receiving AA-U2 (also MSK)
Once I participated in a test myself, the SW works.
For this you use a soundcard on the PC, no TNC.

Few items are in German, but Google can translate those for you.
Although, I can read the German quite easy:
Satelliten = satellites
Telemetrie = telemetry
... but that's maybe since I watched German kids TV when I was young
(those were the days TV here in Holland started only at 4pm or so
and I lived 10 km's from the border with Germany....all entirely off-topic !

Hi all,

I didn't get a response the last time I asked, so I'll try again, slightly

What TNC or TNC-like equipment do I need to listen to BeeSat at 4800 bps? I
have a TS-2000, yagi antenna, rotator, and KAM-XL, but the KAM-XL can only
do GMSK at 9600 bps.

Thanks in advance for your time,


Henk, PA3GUO
