Over my location it's quiet most of the time, despite I can hear it.
It had two passes today at a good angle. On one of them I aimed at it
the same setup I have for SO-50 and LilacSat-2 but no luck. On the
second one I used the omni and 50W when at a lower angle, still no luck.
Applied possible frequency corrections based on reports from around the
world, between 435.160 to 435.185. Zip, nothing.
Guess we still didn't get to know it well around here.
