RE:Need a signal on 2.4 Ghz



Point it at DOVE! Or, should I say (caveat), chase DOVE across the sky and
down the Doppler! DOVE is, of course, on 2401.220, but it starts about 60
KHz high in freq, then shifts almost 110 KHz before you loose it at the
other horizon. Your LO may not be exact, so point where is should be (or
lead it a little), then tune around until you hear it. It can be identified
by the rapid Doppler shift and by its chainsaw voice with occasional fuzzy
burps. A good PSK modem will acquire lock.

Good hunting,
