Special event on HAMSAT


I just read a message of a special event station in
Australia that will be qrv via HAMSAT. It can be found
on the following URL:

I copy/paste the text below:
New Hamsat - Special Event Activity 
India's first Hamsat VO-52 will play a role in
celebrating the ITU's 140th birthday on Tuesday the
17th of May, less than two weeks after its launch.
Special event station AX3ITU on World
Telecommunications Day will work through the satellite
on three passes over Australia. Noel Ferguson VK3FI, a
member of Amateur Radio Victoria, will be signing
AX3ITU and looking for contacts at 0045, 1237 and 2335
UTC, 17th May. 

Each pass lasts only 10 minutes and Noel is planning
to use a fixed transmit frequency without doppler
correction. Hamsat VO-52 has a beacon on 145.860 MHz. 

A team of 16 Amateur Radio Victoria members will
activate AX3ITU on VHF, HF, on the Melbourne ATV
repeater VK3RTV and through Hamsat VO-52. A
commemorative QSL is available direct to VK3WI or via
the bureau. Via - Amateur Radio Victoria
