KD8CAO and K8YSE completed an unscheduled
2 way ssb qso on the ARRISat satellite this
morning 5 August 2011 at 1125z.  Signals were
weak but readable.  My keps were way off as the
doppler shifted 1700 Hz from AOS till overhead
elevation.  If it had a uhf antenna, we would be
doing a lot better, but whatever it has does work
if you have big antennas.  Using a KLM435-40cx and
a KLM 2M-14C.  Just amazing.
