matter which object you pick as they are all in a cluster right now. Also
congrats to the AMSAT Fox team on successful launch and successful
reception of it. Hope to hear it on the coming NA pass at 23:48 UTC
hopefully I can grab a few packets.

We are anxiously awaiting our first squawks from Fox1A. Ground stations
using FoxTelem will see thier packets reported on the "leaderboard" at
www.amsat.org/tlm within a few minutes.
At this writing there are a few system test packets listed from KO4MA and
G0KLA but we will clear them subsequently.

I tried the pass that started here just before 1500 UTC. I think I
heard the downlink, though it was barely audible. The pass had a
maximum elevation of nearly 25 degrees and there weren't any
obstructions for most of it, so there shouldn't have been anything
blocking the signal during that time.

If you have any cards you would like checked for VUCC/WAS, I will be at
the Symposium. I will give preference to satellite contacts first before
I check other bands/modes. If you are going to have cards checked, I
prefer the list be in Grid Square order using an Excel spreadsheet or
Word doc with the second column being the call sign worked. Place all
your cards in the same grid square order as the list with any cards that
contain multiple grids at the end of the stack. If you have lists (from
Yuri, etc), I can go through them as well.

More pointedly, there are a couple of sats that, even though I am not
here, I want the system to track and the respective program to log the
data es forward it to the group keeping track if their own data.
Otherwise, at home, I "try" to remember to be back at the table for this
or that sat. Otherwise I hear the SatPC32 Brauhaus Lassie tell me this
or that Sat is up.
But now I have so many that I want to hear or track that SatPC32 can't
quite cope with it Hi Hi .
