This part made me perk up:
"therefore is potentially demonstrating an interaction with the quantum vacuum virtual plasma"
I clearly have some reading to do.

Checked qrz and others. Nothing on the new station I heard today: 9z4f.
Call comes back as Tridindad/Tobago.
Anyone know anything? I was playing with my dongle and wasn't able to get
the station reconfigured to come back to him. Strong 5/9 into the bird,

I heard lots of new calls on SO-50 today and I really wanted to give them a shout back and say welcome.
Unfortunately, that's about all I heard was a bunch of folks throwing their call sign out.
Is there some "transmit only" mode that I'm not aware of? ;-)
On a more serious note, try to hear the downlink first before transmitting. It reduces QRM and greatly increases your chances of making a QSO!
Thanks and 73,
I have been on a few evening passes of AO-73 lately and have found
little to no activity. With the loss of VO-52, AO-73 now carries our
easiest to hear linear transponder. I will be on the 03:30Z pass over
the United States that covers much of the United States if anyone
cares to join me. I will be calling CQ at around 145.965 MHz.
The transponder will shut off just after 03:37:15 when it enters sunlight.
Several years ago I started posting grid maps on my
website so that grid chasers and grid expeditioners
could get an idea of what was needed by active satellite
operators. However, some of these maps have not been
updated in quite a while. And there are many new grid
chasers that have not submitted their maps for posting.
If you have a map that is currently posted and has not
been updated recently please send me an updated map(s)
or just send me a text file of the grids you have confirmed,
one 4 character grid square per line And another text file
of grids you have worked but are not yet confirmed using
the same format of one grid per line. I will generate the
maps from these files and you can download and print the
resulting map that will be posted.
If you have never submitted a map, please consider doing so.
Knowing who has what is very helpful to potential grid
expeditioners and it is a nice way to keep track of what you
need and where that grid is located with respect to grids
you already have. It's a lot easier for someone in a grid
adjacent to one you need to go there compared to someone who
might live hundreds of miles away doing the same. If you
send me your grid lists as specified above, I will generate
the maps for you.
Here's a list maps on my website and the date they were updated:
Info on how to make the maps is on the grid map page:
Hello Funcube-2 Telemetry Chasers,
What are you using as the "real" frequency as compared to the published frequency of 145.915 MHz?
I've gotten some frames from using the Funcube Dongle Pro+, but want to use my IC-910 and I haven't been around for a pass with telemetry xmissions active to try and tune in the actual downlink.
Mark L. Hammond [N8MH]
a question. Is there a schedule for the telemetry TLM beacon activity
available or are there any special days there the beacon is on? If so
there can I get this information?
