from ON6UG :

A live demo of UO-36 downlink on 2.4 GHz may be given in 
Mannheim ( near Weinheim ) during the VHF-UHF-SHF Tagung on 
September 9-10. Suitable orbits are on Saterday aprox 1550 and 
1730 local time.  As this is with a 1m dish and multibandfeed 
signals are strong.  ( subject to availability of UO-36 ! )
The demo is to be held just outside the lecture rooms area.
