Hi all,

First of all congrats to the ECHO team for the succesfull launch!

I received ECHO just now in JO21WA on 435.150 FM. 
Equipment used: FT-847 with 2x9 el. yagi, vertical polarization.
I'm not equipped to decode 9k6 but below you can see what I observed.

AOS: 2244 UTC, 435.1608 MHz
LOS: 2256 UTS, 435.1452 MHz

Signal strenth fluctuated bewteen S1 and S4 with a period of 
approximately 11 seconds.

Kepler data used (seems to be fairly accurate):
