Re: AO-7: out of eclipse?



Hi Mak,

Well my home brew software tells me AO-07 is now out of eclipse but more
persuasive is the fact that for the first time last night I was able to
maintain contact with VK during what had been a steadily decreasing eclipse
zone here in the Southern hemisphere. I think you can take it that Nova is
correct.

 Hi all,

as I read on AO-7's Online LogBook, today the Satellite "switched" on Mode-A
after a long time.
Looking for eclipse-periods,  according to NOVA today @ 12:25 UTC it was the

last Eclipse  for the current season!   The next one will be on 12th of May,
2009 .

 However, according to Emily's Log that is not true, the end of eclipses
take place at October 2008.

 I wondering...  Is it NOVA "true"  or Emily's Log ?
