sband check p3d not transmitting there uo11 pass fine.......

I havent tried the UO-11 satellite beacon before but it was
right on frequency and right on doppler (54 Khz) whew
2401.500 with a 9 foot dish, pretty nice signal in USB, when it
was in my beam tried NBFM on it as well.
I'm putting together a web page on this setup also have the launch
programme about 1 hours worth from tvro that I will get digitized and put
up asap. nn0v@home.com

I scanned the S band downlink band of ao40
and its dead right now..az 201 el 41 31139km 2.68n 104.92w at 21.05 11/19/00.
The 145.9 signal is OK on a 2m beam and detectable on a portable ssb rx.
.....also checked several commercial downlinks
and they are all as usual......the UO-11 just about quieted my reciever in
nbfm with its 100mw I just let it fly thru the beam, and could still
hear it as it went overhead til it  went past azmuth (30 degree offpoint)
pretty sure this setup is hot enough if they were transmitting,
attention P3d controllers let us know if you are messing with the S band.

Also finally figured out where 2304.0 was coming from,
radiates out the back of an icom r7100 and is a harmonic of 512 mhz.

I mostly mess with broadcast satellites but this one's high enough
in frequency to get my attention.

I tried to send in some info right after launch that didnt get in:

here it is again.

Bye from Chris NN0V see you on Sunsat ISS/Alpha and P3D 430 144 and 1261
