RE: OK I give! (with current Echo keps)



Here's the current keps for Echo as found at
http://www.celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/tle-new.txt

AMSAT-ECHO
1 28375U 04025K   04187.15185066 -.00000116  00000-0 -21944-4 0   106
2 28375  98.2603 256.5527 0084037 197.8869 161.9405 14.40370682   659

The 9600 baud data just sounds like a rise in the noise. I set my squelch so
it's a hair trigger trip.

Also have the following channels programmed in the D7 and TM-D700 for the
pass:

AOS 435.155
TCA 435.150
LOS 435.145

Just tied to hear Echo on the1539 UTC pass over Fort Worth, Texas and heard
nothing. I have the correct time and I am pretty sure I have the correct
set of keps entered into Nova. I am using a D7 and the 440 side of and
Arrow. This is twice I have not heard the bird. The frequency I have on TM
D7 is 435.150. I am certainly no new comer to chasing satellites. But I do
not understand what I am doing wrong.

If someone has the current keps, maybe that will help.

ARRRG!
