Re: Help with AO27



Ed,

The satellite is on over the continental U.S. on ascending passes (S
to N). If the satellite's clock is perfectly synchronized with the
schedule (which it usually isn't - sometimes it is a minute or a few
off), you would expect to initially hear silence at 20:59, one minute
of digital telemetry starting at 21:00:46, seven minutes of the FM
repeater starting at 21:01:06, and then another minute of digital
telemetry starting at 21:08:06.
