I had a listen for the RS15 pass today (0400 UTC 4/12/2000 over Australia)
and got a VERY strange FMing type signal.  The ans bulliten says this sat is
operational in mode A but it definately sounded sick to me.

I recorded about half a minute of the beacon (which seemed to be a bad
unmodulated carrier which was FMing) and a little of me transmitting a
carrier on the 2metre uplink - which also sounded bad on the downlink.  Each
of these MP3 files are about 400K so I won't post them but if anyone wants
to diagnose what I heard please drop me a line and I will send the mp3s
directly.  I would appreciate some help.
