Re: Mode S



The current schedule shows that the AO-51 Mode-S voice downlink will be 
turned on from the 28th to 31st of this month.

    http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/echo/ControlTeam.php

There are quite a few of us who have been waiting to test out our Mode-S 
receive hardware.

Out of interest I will be using a quad patch antenna into a modified 
2500HG MMDS downconverter which I have successfully used with several 
different receivers before.

What is different this time is that I will be feeding the output into a 
Microwave Modules Transverter and then into a Softrock V5 and/or 
Softrock V7 Software Defined Radio.  For the software side I will be 
running the latest DttSP dsp code on Linux along with the GUI  front end 
that I have written in Java.

Regards,

John g0orx/n6lyt
