I don't know, I've worked her well into eclipse. You have to remember to
send the 74hz Pl tone to turn her on, but once she's on, she's good to go.

      Hello all.

I got the interest bug of working the radio satellites. But with all this
new satellites going up, im a little overwhelmed about information on what
each one does or frequencies ect. Basically is there a satellite for dummy
site that lists what each birds information is??..  currently I've done a
hombrew tape measure antenna and HT's, and just haven't been successful on a
qso or heck even hearing so50 yet.

Thank you from a new to satellite,
