AO-40 schedule



Here is the current schedule for hearing the beacon and operating.
With this information, it is possible to enter the various operating
modes of the satellite into your tracking program and at a glance you
can tell whether you should be hearing the beacon on 2401.323 +/-
Doppler. While I am using InstantTrack 1.5, other tracking programs
have this feature as well.

It is worthy of note that when the RUDAK signal is on air, you can
hear it quite well near 2401.787 +/- as a Whooshing sound on SSB and
even better on FM.  So even if the beacon is not on, you still have a
signal to look for with your receiving testing.
