Hi all,
I worked into ARISSat -1 this evening    ( Wednesday 21st  December, 1730 
hrs) prior to it shutting down via
the timer as it moved into the eclipse area.
My downlink was quite healthy once again just using an "Elk" antenna and  
about 20 watts RF power.
Sadly no takers/response to my CQ calls , I also can report that the FM  
transmissions were also healthy
including SSTV.  ( I was not set up to decode or record this)
The opportunities over here in Europe will improve with regression over the 
 next few days and I will once again call in to the satellite whilst it is 
still  active and available prior to it perhaps loosing major height.
Thanks to all of the team and key players in this project which has been of 
 significant value to me personally
for use as a demonstration and example of our  hobby.
Merry Christmas and Very Best wishes and Good Luck to all for the coming  
New Year.
