Nope, It was only announced on the HearSat mailing list and only few 
enthusiastics replied. On this world of new space probes with S band 
downlinks very few are interested in monitoring old birds which comes back 
to live spontaneously.

However the happiness and enjoy I felt after re-discover that old historical 
spacecraft is beyond compare.... It is like space archeology.... An U.S. ham 
re-discovered LES-1 several months ago and some media wrote a news report, 
but the original owner/builder of the satellite didn't reply to his 

About Allouette-2, the interesting was the international collaboration, Cuba 
and Australia are almost in opposites part of the world, but Mike Kenny and 
I still exchange information and collaboreted for confirm the re-discovery, 
and that my friend is the true ham spirit....
