RE: Indian Launch Keplers (maybe)



Hello Group,

The time now is 2316 hours Malaysian standard time or 1516 UTC.

The two objects, UNKNOWN A and UNKNOWN B as downloaded from space-track
which is the same as the one reported below this message have just passed
over Kuala Lumpur, West Malaysia with a maximum elevation of 78 degrees and
65 degrees respectively.  

I have tried listening to both beacons on 145.940 +/- and 145.860 +/- in USB
and CW mode but failed to detect any signals.  Does anyone have any ideas
whether the beacon is switched on yet or perhaps have any other keps to try
on?  

73,
Sion Chow Q. C.,
9W2QC.

These last 2 keps below are from Space-Track, are the most recent, and show
the origin as India.

It doesn't mean that either are HAMSAT but might just be final stages and
space junk.  However I am monitory the 2 beacon frequencies.  Unfortunately
the next passes over my QTH are almost 2 hours from now so others will
probably hear something sooner than me :-(
