Using published information about the upcoming Dnepr launch on Thursday, I've produced a set of keps that seem to fit well with the launch time from Yasny.
Sorry they are not in 2-line format, but these can be typed into Nova and other programs. Should be OK for the first 24 hrs after which we will hopefully have some from the launch agency or one of the payload teams.
Epoch time 14170.799
Element set 1
Arg of perigee 175
Mean Motion 14.82

W1AW/9 will be active from Illinois beginning June 25 and continuing through
All operations will be from the EN50 grid square. Exchanging a signal
report is all that is needed for a valid QSO, so there is no need to
struggle with a grid square report if conditions become difficult.
I will plan to be active on AO-7, FO-29, and VO-52. SO-50 operations may be
attempted as time allows. Recently the ISS packet BBS has been active and I
will plan to operate ISS packet (keyboard QSOs) if the repeater is turned on
during the time period allotted. Afternoon and evening passes will be
emphasized, with some morning activity when practical here. Activity will
be minimal during Field Day hours, since satellite resources will be needed
by FD stations. QSLs will be handled through the ARRL. If you need a
contact during a particular time period, I will try to be on the air as
needed. You can contact me at aa9lc(a)amsat.org <mailto:[email protected]> if
you have any requests or suggestions.
