UHF Testing Between MGS and Mars Odyssey and the SRI 46-meterAntenna



Dear Interested Mars Radio Amateurs,

We have just concluded 3 days of testing between the MGS and Mars 
Odyssey spacecraft in orbit at Mars and the SRI 46-meter Antenna.  We 
successfully transmitted CW to and received CW from both spacecraft. 
This test is a precursor to a more ambitious test with both 
spacecraft during Opposition the week of August 25th.  It is hoped to 
have a more detailed sequence of events and Doppler predictions 
available to the amateurs in advance of that test.  As ever, stay 
tuned.  And thank you for your interest.

Sincerely,
John
