Subject: [amsat-bb] AO-27 possible failure
AO-27 sent data after the repeater mode expired on
the 1835utc pass, 5 October. 50 seconds into the data,
the "mark/space" toggling stopped and a "mark" only tone
was heard. That tone was heard for 4-1/2 minutes until
the signal was lost when the bird went over the horizon.
A recording of the entire pass is on my website:
AO-27 was not heard in EN91 on the scheduled 2015utc pass.
I think my receiver is working fine but maybe it wasn't.
Let's hope it can be recovered. An email was sent to N3UC
and a message was left on his home phone.
Any reports from other locations?
