Re: AO-7 TLM results



Jim -

Thank you for the Excel spreadsheet and Jan King's assistance. If AO-7 stays
the course, it will bump UoSat-2 /Oscar 11 as the oldest amateur satellite
... still operating.

The 17th AMSAT-UK Colloquium is next weekend (Friday 26 July to Sunday 28
July 2002) at Surrey University, Guildford, Surrey, U.K.

Obviously there will be discussion of the "rebirth" of AO-7.
