I'm not sure what sort of computer you may be using.  But, if you are on a
windows machine, for example, you should be able to right-click on the file
link of interest, and save a local copy to your machine.

As an example:
http://www.papays.com/sat/general.html is the page I'm seeing.  Is that that
one you're using?

The first link:

XW-2D_23Nov2017_225420z.mp3 5K0T signing off at less than 1 degree on his end
(with joy)

The XW-2D_23Nov2017_225420z.mp3 part is an active link.  If you right click,
you can select "Save Link As" and choose where you want to save the new file
on your computer.

Hope it helps.

Hi all

I'm doing (at least) three more satellite presentations ( and hopefully
demos) this spring for ham clubs in the western NC region.

I normally play a couple of K8YSE's sat QSOs from his website when I have
internet access at the presentations.

However, I may not have internet access at two presentations this year, so
I'm wondering what software - or methods - I might use to "capture" K8YSE's
MP3 files  from his website (or satellite pass recordings from others) and
save them (in whatever format) on my PC so that I don't need internet

This would also come in handy for hamfest tables, so prospective AMSAT'ers
can actually hear what both FM and analog QSOs sound like.
