Had a 20 degree elevation pass in sunlight of ARISSat-1 over West
Malaysia at 0202 UTC, 07 August 2011.
Managed to copy and forward 21 telemetry and kursk frames to the
ARISSatTLM server, and this time I had SATPC32 adjust the doppler in
10 Hz steps. Although the doppler correction seems to be a bit too
frequent, but it made the CW signal stay on the yellow marker fairly
However, due to fading only 21 frames were copied. I guess the
copying would be better if the fading rate is reduced. Still
experimenting with this mode, and hope that the above will be useful
to someone. Also noticed from previous observations that it is
difficult to get a lock when the satellite is in low power eclipse
mode, as the TX gets turned off too quickly.
Have a great weekend to all.
