@ Dave,

Sorry I should have used the AMSAT name which is MO112.

@ Joan;

To note that the PACSAT Broadcast in spite showing active is not working for the moment except for the Directory download, this was broken when correcting issues with the digipeater and will be corrected asap by the operational team. 

To digipeat you may wish to use UISS (by ON6MU) https://www.qsl.net/on6mu/uissdownload.htm

The digipeater callsign is 3B8MIR-1

Jean Marc,
I've checked at several satellite tracking sites including the satellite website, but can't see where to go to track it's location.
Where do I go to see what days and times it will be passing over my home in Orlando, FL?

Thank you,
Dave, AA4KN

Dear All,

Below a Tweet I sent a few minutes ago:

"Any successful 2 way-QSO with MIR-SAT 1 digipeater? I will personally send 2 MIR-SAT 1 first day cover to the first parties reporting a QSO, some value to the HAM community I believe as it is quite rare that a HAM satellite is recognize by having by a national stamp. 73 Jean Marc

It would be really a great news for me to have a confirmation that at least one 2-way QSO has been made through MIR-SAT 1 thus confirming it fully as a real HAM bird.

Your help is again important to achieve this important milestone, making the mission a full success.

Unfortunately, I cannot do it right now as so far I am the only station capable to digipeat trough LEO’s in the region but working with 3B8 and FR OM's these days to make it possible as I personally will really like to make a 2-way QSO through MIR-SAT 1.
