I copied the following on 7/27/01 at 2300 UTC MA 100:

Start= 10:45:12 8607  #5380     End = 15:20:30 8608  #54FF      
QST AMSAT OSCAR-40       ***UPDATE***            2001-07-27
ALON/ALAT = 333/3.  Middle beacon on continuously.
U/L1 -> S2,  MA 10 - 99
***Passbands, beacon may be turned off for RUDAK testing.***

I was very surprised to copy almost 40% good blocks! AO-40 was 62,000 km away 
from me and the squint was calculated at 48 degrees! Once I copied a good 
telemetry block, and reset for ALON/ALAT 333/3 it showed a more resonable 24 
degree squint.

For IT users, enter ALAT/ALON of -3,153.

Equipment, Myers BBQ dish, DB6NT preamp, modified Drake into an FT-290R MKII. 
Using AO40rcv for telemetry.
