Hello AMSATers,
SO-50 with it's lower ERP  and apparent spin make it a more difficult bird for the handheld guys to keep up with but not at all impossible.  I have been curious though if anyone has information as to what the spacecraft/antenna orientation is and what is the spin rate if any and how that affects workability?  I find myself explaining the quirksof this bird to folks and would like a little more intelligent set of answers.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.
