Hi Gang,
I excitedly tuned my base station, connected to a dual band Ventenna on the
roof, to the downlink frequency of 145.950 mHZ this morning as I tracked ISS
on a pass over North America. I'm in Southern New Jersey.  I was amazed to
be able to hear the initial greeting female voice from this special bird! On
the following pass I used a portable HT and Arrow Antenna out on the lawn
and copied ARISSat-1 5X9!  Thanks to all who made this possible and all who
are helping us enjoy this wonderful hobby!
Sincerely & 73,
Harry ~ W3DNQ
