Re: Re: Question on AO-40 for downlink



In November 2002, the apogeee SSP of AO40 was 7 degrees south latitude.
That resulted in a maximum apogee elevation of 83 degrees minus your
latitude (in the Northern Hemisphere).

In April 2004 the apogee SSP of AO40 will reach it's northernmost point of
11 degrees north latitude.  That will result in a maximum apogee elevation
of 111 degrees minus your latitude (in the Northern hemisphere).  The DX
opportunities will be MUCH better for hams in the mid and upper northern
latitudes.

You can see for yourself on your tracking program.
