All excellent articles, indeed. But Todd is right where I was several years ago. If he were to take
the cited references as his source for info, he'd be programming freqs for birds long deceased ...
For current info (as of a few minutes ago) on the easy-to-work FM birds (right now, SO-50 and
the ISS), my Web site will get you working this week ...
For the SSB birds - including AO-73 that was just recently deployed, there is a "What Else?"
link on the Sat Skeds page. Even if you do not have SSB equipment, you can hone your
tracking skills with a couple of these new satellites.
For those birds, watch AMSAT-NA and AMSAT-UK for current info. AMSAT-NA has their sat
pass prediction system online, too - just remember to back out appropriate number of hours, because
their data is shown to you in GMT ...
AND you will find plenty of assistance here, too!
