I wanted to let W6IHG that I did hear him through ARISSat-1 during my
1817 UTC pass. I have an audio recording of that pass. I believe I
also heard WB2OQQ. There was also a station sending SSTV through the
transponder but the station was not using Doppler. He went right out of
the bandpass. I tried to follow but could not.
I noticed that even though ARISSat-1 was in full sunlight, it went into
Low Power mode. I was able to get a pretty decent SSTV copy during that
pass, also. I am trying to determine what I am going to do when it
terminates. It has taken up a good portion of my operating since August
4th. HI HI.
There is another pass coming up in 5 mins (1951UTC). It will be a 13
degree pass so that should be pretty decent also.
