GO32 is in APRS mode for Field Day.
I just checked on the LIVE DOWNLINK on the GO32 APRS web page:
And there seems to be active users testing. So if you want an
uncongested satellite that anyone can work with APRS at 9600
baud you might consdier it. (The D7 and D700 are ready to go!)
I also noticed that ISS is in APRS mode (1200 baud) so unless it
changes before the weekend, that is also a possiblity.
I just got the following from Peter DB2OS, and made another
donation....You will be rewarded with the fact that you have
contributed to the launch of the next hamsat OF ANY SIGNIFICANCE, and
besides a nice colored certificate!!
I encourage all of the REAL hamsaters amongst us to join in!

Pulling for P3E...
Version 0.3.0 of the General Astrodynamics Library has
been released. It can be downloaded from the project
Updates in this release:
* ODE Integrator sub-library created.
Lunar position and velocity routine added to
sub-library. Routine implements LUNAR SOLUTION
ELP version ELP/MPP02
Solar position and velocity routine added to
Acceleration from spherical harmonics routine
Many routines updated for internal compatibilty
with the upcoming
official IAU SOFA C library. R-matrices have
reversed compared to GAL 0.2 and earlier.
Work will now be started on the classical keplerian
models, and atmosphere models.
The General Astrodynamics Library (GAL) is a numerical
library for C and C++ programmers. It is free software
under the GNU General Public License.
The library provides a wide range of astrodynamical
routines such as ephemerides, earth orientation, and orbit
propagation. There are over 225 functions in total with an
extensive test suite.

Hello to everybody, after a look to a very interesting site about SDR http://hpsdr.org/ and in view of the forthcoming Amsat-NA 2008 Space Symposium in Atlanta, I want propose, to
the various SDR developers and users, the possibility to explain his SDR experience applied
to VHF and up and precisely to the satellitie's activities, this, to share
experiences and other interesting things about this current and future tech
What do you think? is there an interest about?

Just had an excellent pass for this satellite and managed to capture and
upload 550 packets of telemetry to their servers.
It was cool to watch the data change as the satellite passed over and to
see things like the massive difference in temps between sensors on the
satellite such as +35degC on one and -68degC on the other !
