I havn't gotten a ROUND TUIT yet.




Hi Thomas,
                 Thank you. I've got it all sorted out now. In fact, I suspect that which Amsat-UK have on the video as X-3 may well have been an Orbcomm satellite on 137.560Mhz ... but I may be wrong ... I havn't gotten around to checking the TLM yet.

I have the Orbcomm software so it should be easy to compare.
I put the X-3 keps into NOVA and InstantTRACK so it will be relatively easy to check - when I have time.

Thanks again for the X-3 keps.

Hello John



Here is your set:



1 05580U 71093A   08035.91733844  .00000129  00000-0  24102-4 0  7288

2 05580 082.0434 342.4015 0548957 143.7064 220.2679 13.89539227815329



But the object nr. doesn't match !

At Celestrak you don't need a password.
