>From the east coast of Canada, heard all components of the ARISSAT-1
signal (CW, BPSK, SSTV, FM voice) in the passes beginning at the
following times:
05:00, 08:12, 09:50, 11:25Z

These were recorded overnight with a FCD using a set LO frequency of
145,910 kHz. This ensured that all telemetry was recorded (but clear
of the centre spike), and FM was recorded well, except at the very
early part of passes, when it might be expected to be lost in noise
anyway (I have an omni antenna).

Hooray for the hard work and cooperation that has led to this
ARISSAT-1 success, and hooray for the FCD!
