few days ago I asked here on the reflector:

is there an easy to follow scheme when SO-50 ist switched on? Where do you
get the information from? I tried out SO-50 few days ago and it worked
fine, but the next day it was silent. Must I try every orbit if it is on or

I have not received any response yet. Is there anybody who knows? BTW, I
found that the nominal downlink frequency seems to be 5 kHz lower, 436.795 MHz.
