   Hello Ken, all,

   Yes, I received AAUSAT-4 around 0545 UTC, orbit number 5 on 437.425 
MHz +- 10 kHz Doppler shift (not decoded for the moment), strong signal. 
There was a CW signal at a moment but as I was in NBFM mode and the time 
needed to switch to CW or SSB the signal was gone, I just see it on the 
  On the next pass, orbit number 6 around 0720 UTC no CW was heard here, 
only short digital transmissions.

   Unfortunately, absolutly no signal received from the E-st at r-II bird 
(437.485 MHz)... and I did not try OUFTI-1 as I was busy on 70 cm band.
