If these keps are correct then hams in DM04rj will be treated to a 53 
degree pass from ARISSAT-1 around 2331 UTC (331pm local) this afternoon 
(Tuesday). Here in the Santa Clarita Valley, 30 miles north of Downtown 
Los Angeles, we are surrounded by 3000-6000 foot peaks. We have not seen 
a pass above 20 degrees since mid-October. To date I have only managed 
to successfully receive ARISSAT-1 twice, I'm hoping this afternoon I 
will be able to receive a SSTV image, decode some telemetry or contact 
someone through the transponder.
