OSCAR 24 (ARSENE)



Hello all

In my  notes about Arsene:

Downlink 145.975 MHz
S-band beacon 2446.540 MHz, 1200 FM-AFSK
Never heard about  435 MHz option.
It was used in emergency comms tests.

How many of you worked via AO-24 ?

Greetings for everybody.
Lets QSO on AO-40

Hi,

>From an old keplerian element set published in the AMSAT-DL Journal
Dez./Feb.93/94 the official designation was SATELLITE: AO-24 (ARSENE)

Satellite :  AO-24
Catalog numbar :    22654
Epoch time:              93312.795592387
Element set:             208
Inclination:               1.4077 deg
RA of node:             114.0599 deg
Eccentricity:             0.2932748
Arg of perigee:         160.6003 deg
Mean anomaly:         214.5238 deg
Mean motion:           1.42203069 rev/day
Decay rate:                -4.6e-07 rev/day ^2
Epoch rev:                 263

If you put this keps in to your traking program you will enjoy a
very interesting orbit.

Unfortunately ARSENE was not completely working but for some
time it permitted nice QSO in mode-S  435 up and 2446 down.
