I received the news that VO-52 will be switched on in a couple of hours from now, at 13:50UTC, (03-March-2012)
Unfortunately the satellite will not pass over central Europe, and I am not able to check the status the first two orbits.
I am looking for hams in Russia, Northern Europe, Canada, USA, or others that can listen for VO-52 right after it is turned on.
! ! ! Please don't use high uplink powers !!! (We don't want it to rise temperature very fast just after cold switch on) ! ! !
Please listen for the CW beacon at 145.860, which is a good reference.
(Audio records and reports are very welcome at ISRO and myself)
