I just had a 17 degree pass of arrissat-1 here. On 145.950 FM I heard 
sstv and international greetings.
When the sat was transmitting on 145.950 the transponder was active and 
I could here myself but the signal was weak.
When I couldn't hear myself anymore I noticed the transmisions on 
145.950 has also stopped. When greetings came back, transponder was back 
Setup: Yaesu FT-847 with 50 watts. Antennas: 12 element yagi for uplink 
and 7 element yagi for downlink, both vertical mounted.
I made a recording if anybody is interested to hear it.
