The ARISSat-1/Kedr transmission test is scheduled to begin at 1915Z. There
is a 15 minute transmission delay, so don't expect to receive any signals
until 1930Z.  The satellite transmissions will be in low power mode, which
means that there are no transmissions for 2 minutes (seems like a long time
when you are listening for a signal) and about 45 seconds On, then off again
for 2 minutes. So, during an average 8 minute pass you will probably only
hear 2-3 transmissions periods. FM at 145.95 MHz, CW at 145.919 MHz, BPSK at
145.920 MHz.
