Hastily listened to the 0044utc 27th June pass over VK to see if I could
hear any of the new birds.

Just grabbed TLE set 36R, no logic to that, just that they should be still

Had my Funcube Dongle set to listen 437.465 to 437.555.

Was low elevation pass but certainly activity on waterfall.

Copied 8 frames from CP-9 and noted a marginal signal adjacent so tuned to

Eventually two decodes from Armadillo.


There's a star. There's another one. Star. Star star star. Star.

Don't like space. Don't like space.


Next pass is higher elevation, so maybe better results.

No guarantees in this game.
