The recordings sound neat.

I would have not known at the time of the QSO if I were talking on RS-10 or
RS-11.  As you know they were multiple satellites, but physically connected
together as one orbiting object, they may have even had only one power bus.

Hi Joe,

Beginning from OSCAR-6 up to AO40 I have all my QSO recorded on
a professional tape recorder REVOX A77 using 1/4" tape winded in many
and many big coils each 10.63 " in diameter and so I can enjoy to hear time
to time the voice of my old satellite friends and as well the CW ROBOT
of the RS satellites.Before to start any QSO I mention on tape the name of
the satellite the orbit numbar and the date, just for record along with the
log on paper.
