Hi all,
Pleased to report that I heard the beacon ( 145.980 mhz ) on Alsat -1n -  
Pratham on this mornings pass
here in Wales - UK     The pass was at 0945  GMT and being at a reasonable 
height easy to monitor.
I used the keps that were originally posted and my equipment my usual  
Kenwood TS 2000 and tracking with 
the "ELK "  antenna.
If I get a chance I will listen again on the next pass and perhaps get  a 
recording - I wonder how the data
downlink was  performing if switched on whilst over France.?
Congratulations to the team and also of course to "ISRO" for the success on 
 the launch.
Ken Eaton
