Winter has set in for Chicago before I had a chance to get an antenna put up
for 28.120 MHz. But I've been occasionally monitoring the 435.350 MHz
downlink. PSAT's PSK-31 beacon on the downlink is strong (a lot stronger
than the 145.825 downlink). 

I've been using FLDIGI (it's free) for receiving PSK-31 in my shack. Besides
the beacon there is plenty of empty bandwidth during a pass on the waterfall
display. Give 435.350 a listen to start getting used to the characteristics
of this satellite.
