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!
