I got my first taste of satellites listening to ATS-3 with a discone,
wideband tower mounted preamp, and Regency MX-3000 receiver back in
about 1984. There were continual round table discussions by the Bahia
from places like Roatonga. 135.575 MHz I recall.
Does anyone else recall this traffic? Is it still going on?
From that I started hearing various channels of Fleetsatcom between 250
and 270 MHz, loud and clear with the same setup.
