Looking for something to keep you busy on those cold New England
evenings? How about something to take with you to the beach while you
catch some rays. Or even after hiking to the top of your favorite
mountain and enjoying the breath taking view?
The ARRL Satellite Handbook by Steve Ford, WB8IMY, is the perfect
publication to take with you. For the new satellite and seasoned
operator, this is for you.

As W7LRD observed, AO-7 did not go to mode B as expected earlier today.
As of 0100 March 1, it was still in mode A (with signals in the 10m
downlink weak) and the 70cm beacon is on at 435.100 with a good signal.

When it is the elevation more than about 30 degrees,
you will be able to digipeat your GMSK signals.
And you need to give power more than about 10 watts,
and it's necessary to use a pre-amp for downlink
because the output power from CO-65 is 300[mW].
This is VERY VERY weak output power from CO-65.

Subject: [amsat-bb] AO-27 may return, once again...
I saw on the AO-27 web page:
that the satellite is transmitting once again. From the schedule
posted on that page, it appears it will be transmitting several
minutes of data on the same passes it would have been on in the
past (for a few minutes over the Northern Hemisphere). Let's
hope all checks out well, so this satellite can return to normal
(for AO-27) operation soon.
