Hi all,
Just had a pass with AOS at 0946 UTC here 
in Copenhagen.

It works as described on the page:


It means that you do not need the PL-tone once 
the transponder is started.
In fact do not set the tone ON. The transponder 
sounds better without the tone.

As before use FMN on the uplink - and turn the AF gain 
down until your modulation sounds good to yourself.

Use of high power also seems to distort the audio on 
the downlink.

This is just the experience from one short pass :-)

The list on the homepage above may not be up to date 
all the time. When we receive confirmed lists from 
the control station we will publish on amsat-bb.
Depending upon the time of the day - may need to sleep 
every now and again.

This week until Monday next week I have only asked for 
morning passes over Europe.
Next week I will ask for afternoon passes as well 
when the satellite is in Sun.

Please remember we are just passengers on Sumbandilasat.
If there are other tasks they take priority.
