Re: Monitoring the skies



Here is a link to a company that provides all the necessary equipment and
decoding software.

http://www.ssccorp.com

They also have a page that gives the frequencies and status:

These sats are also "wide band" FM.  If you are planning on decoding them,
you will need to have a receiver capable of at least 6 KHz wide reception.
There is a modification you can do to a scanner by removing one of the IF
filters, but I don't remember which one. That is what they offer from SSC,
but it is a little pricey.  You may be able to find info for the
modification on the Internet.

Subject: [sarex] Monitoring the skies


I finally set up a nice discone (a big step up from the old rubber-duck!)
and went about monitoring some 136+mhz in hoping to catch some WX sats.  I
came across some garbled radio traffic on 139.220 FM.  Im in western
oregon, so it could be jsut about anything.  Could someone help me out and
point a ham who's not to good with the satilites and such to a good place
to get a frequency listing or two?  I have KEPS coming out of my ears, but
what I really need are the frequencies to listen for.

thanks and 73,
