AO40 K band

  Greetings all ,
  at 1200Gmt 4/10/2001  the K band signal from AO40 was copied  at Mount Gambier  in South Australia  
(Grid Locator QF02je) the signal was  6-7db above the noise and the elevation of the satellite was approx 36
 degrees elevation and 320 degrees az.  The gear here is 600mm dish f/d.5   Home brew receiver based on DB6NTmark 3 mixer 
and using a 3 stage Pre-amp using fujitsu FHX13 gaas fets. The signal was also heard by VK5DK on his gear which is the same as mine only using a 450mm dish .  The test was at the Qth of VK5DG and we were copying the telemetry from AO40 on the 2.4ghz downlink
