Re: L/S Mode



Nothing heard on the 05:10z pass.  Only a 10 degree pass, but off in a 
favorable direction (no trees).  Downlink carrier was very weak and barely 
there, if at all.  Keying up on 1268 had no effect, as before, though I 
doubt I would have heard anything even if it had..

Anybody having success?

Hi Bruce,

Well something's working.  I just finished the 03:30z pass here.  I heard a
couple of partial calls on the 2401.200+/- ghz downlink - VE7C?? and another
partial suffix.  The pass started with someone with a nice clear signal and
a Spanish/Mexican accent.  There was a call sign, but I didn't catch it.

However, I was not able to get into the bird myself on 1268.700 +/-.  Not
even a change in static, even right after I heard an apparent full-quieting
"kerchunk".  This is with my new and unproven helix antenna, so I have one
too many unknowns here to know what the problem is.  I did follow the same
doppler process on the L-band uplink, and also swept the general vicinity,
so that shouldn;t have been the problem, and the pass peaked at about 50
degrees.  Nothing back from my uplink.

Anybody else have a go at it?

Greg  KO6TH.

BB

     Either my S-Band D/L is not working or the sat never shifted into the
new
mode. Comments from the bb.
