Re: Logging satellite contacts



Hi Ron.

A lot of guys use a tape recorder or digital recorder to log with. Some hook
it in parallel with the speaker, some put it in a shirt pocket to record the
stations that they reply to.

I think it was me you worked at 2353 UTC on 7/16/03. Congrats on your first
qso! With that setup you can also work AO-27 (weekend morning passes) and
SO-50. SO-50 and AO-27 both are on timer operation with the same
frequencies, 145.850 up, and 436.800 (+/- doppler, start around 805-810).
SO-50 requires a tone of 67.0 hertz on the uplink, and only transmits if it
hears a signal with that tone. Good Luck!
