[amsat-bb] Sounds of old satellites

Recently I found some old audio cassettes on which I had recorded some
of the sounds I heard from the satellites back in the eighties.

Rather than discarding the tapes I decided to digitize them and make
them available to interested persons.

I have got sound bites from:

- RS-5
- RS-7
- Oscar 9
- Oscar 10
- Oscar 11

I also found recordings from my attempts to contact Owen Garriot, W5LFL,
during his pioneering trip on STS-9 in Nov/Dec 1983. I made three
attempts but only one of them has a few minutes with the voice of W5LFL,
so that is the only one on my site.

The audio clips are here:


If anybody has - or can detect - further information I will be more than
happy to add it to the data presented on my web site.

BTW is there a commonly accepted repository for things like what I have
made? If so I'll be glad to place them in that repository as well.
