These should be popular sats.  The inclination is 43 degrees so they will
come over central USA latitudes seven times a day each.  We just need more
people using them with SSB radios.
Just monitor 145.87 and 145.925 SSB.

Transponder looks cleaner than the other XW sats, no beats or pulse signals
noticed so far. QSOs on CAS 4A and CAS 4B this afternoon with PU2RAS, LU2DPW
and LU2FGL.

I was able to hear my voice through CAS-4A and 4B transponders tonight under
one degree of elevation using ~5 watts into 10' of LMR-240uf and a 4 element
70cm / 2 element 2m "Short Arrow" yagi. Very easy satellite to work with
minimal power.
