[amsat-bb] CAMSAT- CAS-2T

Earlier this evening the East Coast USA pass went right over me. I included
a couple of images (both FM & CW) and my best guess at the CW decode in a
... and there is also a link to the CW audio in there if anyone would like
to know what to listen for. The CW beacon plays the sequence in my decode,
pauses for a few seconds, and starts over again. So, in a good pass you'll
get multiple shots at it should the signal fade.

I agree with your findings.
On the 00:15 utc pass over USA, I copied strong CW beacon. Copied
"CAMSAT CAMSAT CAS2T FT FT T T T T T T".
The FM transponder only returnes a fluttering sound when keyed.
Looks like the TLE's for 2016-066E are a usable match. Can't say for
sure since 2016-66F was over top of 66E on this pass.
Using the reference for CAMSAT as suggested by Mike as 2016 -66 E - I
heard the beacon at 1744 hrs GMT on a high pass. - down link frequency
It was very strong - I heard some noises on the transponder downlink but
don't know what it was.
