Re: Newbie Here AO-51 Questions.



Re Time Sync: The clock on my computer is currently synced with an internet
time server. It only varies by about 3 seconds from the atomic clock on the
wall.

I am not using the computer to control the radio. With the exception of this
morning, all my monitoring has been from the driveway of my house while
stationary. This morning I listened while taking my daughter to school.

The AMSAT Online Satellite Pass Predictions showed a pass of AO-51 for this
morning as follows (Times UTC):
29 Feb 08 13:55:12 00:07:29 277 8 318 20 14:02:41

I didn't hear anything on this pass. Could this be because the elevation was
only 8? I started listening at 13:50 and ended at 14:10 hearing nothing but
noise.

I'll try to listen for for the 20:19 pass which shows a maximum altitude of
75.
