Hi JoAnne and Joe!
I didn't hear the satellite's messages during a pass over the
southwestern USA this morning, just before 1200 UTC (8am EDT,
or 5am PDT). Near the end of the pass, just after 1200 UTC, I
did hear a carrier on 145.800 MHz for a couple of instances.
No audio, but a carrier - like something was keying the input
of the cross-band repeater on the TM-D710G. Maybe the batteries
in the satellite are exhausted, and need a recharge. Or we'll
have to wait for the other satellite to be activated, possibly
tomorrow if the schedule holds.
