Re: SO-50



Hello,

- I tried several times to use this sat but without success,from time
to time you read a mail that the sat is/was active in a certain area!?
The point is, I myself have send several mails to Sudisats mail adress
but without a single reply.I would like to have a reply saying, it is still
in testing stage, it is still ..., but you hear nothing, no op. shedule nor
anything else.I know that the sat has a dual purpose, but still a strange
behavior from saudisat not saying anything. No one on the BB seems
to have a answer to explain, or has given an explanation.
The big change in signal you observed may be the squint angle of the
sat or ant. pionting, the power output of So-50 is only 250mW
