Re: Satellite on 144.1 ?



All,
Further to my previous post.
The signal has been copied by all the DX hounds on 
144MHz on Eastern Coast and Southern States of 
Australia. Period is approximately 110 minutes.
Copied onwards from 2200 UTC, 2350 UTC and 0140 UTC 
in VK1, VK2, VK3 and VK5. 
Continuos transmission from beacon of
VVV DEC NZA RKA AAL YAM AMA
Good thing its not April 1st.
Best regards,
Colin VK5HI
