Good signals from ARISSat-1 with transistion from eclipse to sunlight here this morning.
Apx. 6 second spin period puts deep nulls in transmitted signal. - Not sure if this is due to linear polarisation of my receive antenna or blockage from spacecraft.
Managed to capture just 3 tlm frames and '2 Kursk frames' . (mission time 29997-30018) However, software forwarded zero frames via internet (?).
If recording to a .wav file, CW positioned to be 500Hz seems to work well.
Battery voltage around 33V status - charging.
