I loaded the latest keps today and the pass times are confirmed. Looking
forward to hearing NIWAKA!
I will be recording the pass using a FunCube Dongle in I & Q RF mode, so
I'll have ~ 80 kHz of bandwidth. If I'm able to detect the signal on 10 Nov,
I can try an RTL SDR receiver on 11 Nov that can receive a much wider
bandwidth. I use HDSDR with both SDR receivers.
I will be setting up portable in a nearby parking lot so I have an
unobstructed view to the satellite. I see the Doppler will be quite large on
both days (~ 125 kHz). I use the original NOVA program on my laptop in the
field which calculates Doppler for me.
Let's hope for success and thanks for coordinating this test.
