RE: New AO-40 ALON/ALAT



Hello Scott,

The telemetry source I monitor is the middle beacon ("MB") on 2401.323 +/-
Doppler. While RUDAK is running right now, it is extremely difficult to
monitor, due to high squint angles.

I'm not sure exactly what question you are asking. If you want to know my
radio setup, I am using a BBQ dish with a SSB UEK3000SAT downconverter; 160
feet of LMR400; an FT736r with the data audio jack into the Line Input on my
sound card. I am using AO40Rcv v. 1.32 for DSP. I built the Mike click
up/down interface for the FT736, so AO40Rcv also does automatic doppler
adjustment for me.

I almost always feed the Goddard Space Flight Center ("GSFC") telemetry
server with my data, so whenever AO-40 is within radio range of Atlanta, GA,
you can join in on the fun by monitoring the telemetry echoed by that
server.

Regards,
Steve Diggs, W4EPI
