Thanks to Jeff, WB8RJY for providing the correct Doppler.SQF file for
NAYIF-1 to me via email last night. Was hoping to work Jeff tonight.
Worked Perry, WB8OTH instead. I am running a Kenwood TS-2000 X into a
pair of eggbeaters with a pre-amp on the 70 cm side. Perry and I
played with our output power and could work each other at 5 watts when
the bird was near 10 degrees for me and below that for Perry. As
reported already, a very strong signal with NO drift. I set the dial
once with SatPC32 and did not touch it the rest of the pass. Sorry you
were not on the bird Jeff. Hope to work you soon.

Congrats to all on the Nayif-1 team. A great new satellite. #42017 is
the correct keplerian elements for this bird. Thank you Nico.
