I heard you more than once.  I didn't think to use a PL tone.


Hi all,

I just had a nice 60 degree pass over CM98, and using the tracking info
from http://amsat.org.ar/pass.htm# I was able to throw my call sign
through the satellite, but only once.  There is about a half-second
delay on the Receive side, but it's not at all a problem.

The success was just a bit after TCA.  I did have the 67 hz tone enabled
throughout the pass, manual tuning of Tx and Rx, per the info from the
website (thanks Pedro!).  Very clear audio on the downlink, nice and
strong.  But I couldn't do it again.  Just the one transmit / receive
event.  No other traffic heard, though there might have been some weak
stuff earlier in the pass while I was tuning around.

Next pass is very low to the north west, but may give it a try.
