Nothing heard from ARISSat-1 this AM 15:04 Z Nov 29..  Did anyone hear signals from 145.930 or 145.950?  Pass was very short over Cincinnati this AM and El only 2 deg..  
Will try again Wednesday Nov 30 at 13:43 Z but believe eclipse will prohibit sat to be active.

With the research and recent "heads up" by Mineo Wakita, JE9PEL, Allan Biddle, WA4SCA and Clint Bradford, KCLCS it appears there may be only a few weeks left to receive and  experiment with ARISSat-1/RADIOSKAF-V.
On Monday Nov 28 I will be set up to receive voice, CW and SSTV via the transponder  on 145.930 MHz +/- doppler.   This will be on the AOS starting at 14:47 Z pass over Cincinnati. This pass may be too soon after the eclipse so the sat may not be activated.  If it is active,  I will try to send a couple of  SSTV R36 transmissions.  I will be listening and looking for others to send also.
