Heard K9OIM and N8MH on the 20:19 pass. Will be listening again on the 21:52 pass if ARISSat is not too close to the eclipse and turned off..

The FM section of ARISSat was sending very strong voice and SSTV signals on 2 passes over Eastern USA Dec 18. Hoping that some stations will try experimenting with voice and SSTV through the Transponder 435.750 LSB up listening 145.930 MHz USB +/- doppler down. I will be listening for contact on the Eastern USA pass today AOS 20:19 UTC . Do not believe there are many days left for ARISSat-1 to be in orbit, I show it is down to about 172 miles altitude according to Nova tracking with latest Keps..
