Re: AO-7 in Darkness -- Has anyone heard it?



I had a quick lok before work yesterday at a pass 27th  1850 aprox.
On discone wb antenna signals were not strong  and sat had just left sun as
indicated by wisp sun terminator, but I believe would have still been in the
sun as horizon from 1500km will be about 2300km or around an hour on the
ground. ( very round figures) I missed the suitable orbit this morning, and
I won't promise to be up at 0530 on Sunday Morning!
