I remember hearing this transmission

*On Christmas eve a couple of decades (Cirus 1990's) or so ago, I recall how
our AMSAT-Germany friends uploaded a beautiful rendition of "Silent Night"
to their AO-21 FM Amateur Radio transponder (which was, at the time, riding
piggyback on a Russian satellite). Then, for then next 24 hours or so, we
all got to listen to that wonderful music emanating from AO-21's 2m FM
downlink as the satellite went round and round our Earth. I hope to enjoy
again WA1ZMS transmitting Christmas music on 486 khz. tomorrow
