Hi to everybody, after have reading this article about the possibility of bringing Vanguard 1 back to Earth http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23639980/ , an "unhealthy" idea has crossed my brain... , premise that Vanguard 1 is "3.25-pound (1.5-kilogram), 6.4-inch-wide (16.3-centimeter-wide)" so little.. , a program to recover/repair something of too bigger ( like... AO40 ?? ......) is possible ? if the answer is "yes" the costs are too bigger or too low than the launch costs (4.5 million to 15 million Euros to launch) explained by David G0MRF in the past message?
Logically it is necessary that NASA has a similar mission to which rely... would be an interesting study on this possibility of recovery/repair a satellite like AO40 "dead" in space
this message wants to be an open track for a discussion about "Satellite repair in Space"
thanks for your attention and best 73

AO-51 is working now as L/U mode.
But we can not digipeat via PACB-1.
Well, can you access PBBS using WiSP via PECHO-11?

Something happen at 2300Z (1900EST) suddenly the audio level jump louder by a factor of 4 i have to reduce my volume level and i found my
TX audio was also much too loud... Now AO-51 look like AO-16 audio and QSO are manageable. I succeed to have one with Clare VE2NPC and i
also copy a lot of station but at the same floor level strength i used to have before my adjustment (see below).
Only Clare VE3NPC signal seems to get over this curious bottom floor level??
To be clearer all the station coming out the satellite are equal in strength? Only Clare was louder as a kind of AGC treshold seems to be
set too high making a kind of squelching effect?
I just made some adjustment here at the end of the afternoon in a hurry and from an uplink signal very marginal it became near Q5!!! i'm
not too sure what i done and if it is what i done who boost my uplink but i will have to make some test again as said something happen also
on the satellite at the same time?
More to come...and i was able to hear my downlink at LOS + 3'!!!

To Shuttle rebroadcasters:
Many people do not monitor your Shuttle Retransmission
frequencey all the time, and so, may not remember that the
Shuttle is in orbit. Therefore, a TNC should be connected to
the Retransmitter that activates an APRS beacon on the local
APRS channel whenever it is keyed. This APRS beacon will alert
all mobiles on the front panel of their APRS radios in range
that the retransmission is in progress.
We need to get this info out to all volunteer rebroadcasters...
This web page shows how to use just an old TNC and no special
software to format the beacon so that it shows all the relevant
information right there on the front panel of the mobile APRS
This technique also applies to all re-broadcasters of the
Newsline, RAIN report, ARRL Audio file, and any other general
info nets that need to be heard by all radio amateurs.
APRS is your universal real-time ham radio information channel.
If you have info to share, beacon it on APRS live. Monitor APRS
and see what is happening in your area.

Congrats, James ... and welcome to orbit!
I've only been working the satellites for a few months, but I still get the same rush of excitement every time I hear that first signal, which tells me I've acquired the satellite for a given pass. This is the most fun I've ever had in amateur radio!
