Hello Mark and other folks,
I used the object F. I had to calibrate the automatic Doppler correction
two times on the pass but AOS and LOS times were quite accurate.
I will try to decode the next pass.

I printed several STRaND-1 packets and need to figure out what to do with
Which TLEs did you use? Based on timestamps and scrolling time back in
SatPC32, it looks to me like the bird might be behind the pre-launch keps
I'm using. Meaning, I see packets time stamped at the predicted LOS. I was
NOT in the shack, but that's my guess based on time stamps.

On the 22:36 UTC pass both STRaND-1 and AAUSAT3 have been heard in
Cienfuegos city (EL92sd). I was running a FUNcube Dongle with SDR-Radio V1.5
and a homebrew ARROW antenna with a homebrew preamplifier. The STRaND-1
beacon has a great signal (S9+).
Congratulations to the STRaND-1 and AAUSAT3 teams for the great job!
