I made RADIOSCAF-B lemonade this morning at approx 8:50 UTC:
One (1) RADIOSCAF-B satellite w/missing(?) receive antenna
Twenty-five (25) watts of rf (CW) to 11 elements
11 elements for receive
My downlink was not super strong, but certainly Q5.
This was a maximum 6 degree elevation pass for me. Six degrees.
This, and reading Bruce's description of WB4SON's success with QRP leads me
to ask, are we SURE there's not a 70cm antenna attached?
Antenna or no, RADIOSCAF-B or whatever you wish to name it, I think this
is a raging success of the platform. Congratulations to all involved.
