FREQ 216.98 MHz
EIRP 6 Billion watts
Kikapoo Tx Location 33.76N 92.99W
Alabama Location    32.61N 86.25W
AZ location         33.63N 98.84W

It forms a straight line FAN beam only 0.2 degrees wide straight up along
a line oriented at 91.5 degrees azimuth.   Should be easy to hear pings
from LEO satellites.  Even the moon.
