At 1748z today 26 Nov, in Maryland, I heard what sounded like a solid
carrier on 145.825 Cape frequency with clear spin modulation.   It was
right on schedule with the other Wallops launch birds.  Like I said,
sounded like a carrier only, so the spin modulation of the antenna was very
obvious.   Though it could have been some other data or modulation.

Just thought Cape would like to know.  Come to think about it, the rate was
pretty high like 1 RPS and I doubt it was spinning that fast, so donno what
it was.  I was late for a meeting with my boss, so didn’t have time to
figure out more.
