Re: TDRS



These are the NASA Tracking and Data Relay Satellites.  They have been
around for quite a while as you can see by their elements.  They are not
configured for amateur use.

I have noticed that there are 2 fairly new satellites showing up in the keps
called TDRS 4 and TDRS 5.  They seem to be in geosychronous orbit over
opposite sides of the world.  Does anyone know what these are for and if
they are available for amateur use?
