John, I for one appreciate very much your efforts and documentation of passes. This is especially true when my tape log stops or picks up more wind noise than I am giving! Or for when I leave the tape machine at the office and I am a parking lot away. Many tnx fer a fine service! And for this effort to preserve a piece of ham sat history. 73 George WA5KBH -----Original Message----- From: "John Papay" [email protected] Sent: Sunday, March 18, 2012 17:30 To: [email protected] Subject: [amsat-bb] Satellite Recordings 2 Year Anniversary
Today marks the two year anniversary of my satellite recordings website. Since March 18th, 2010, there have been about 2800 recordings posted totalling about 1.9Gb.
AO-51 is the most recorded satellite with 1358 files. It was a great bird and its demise was a great loss to the satellite community. But the sound from it is preserved. It's interesting to go back and listen to some of the older recordings to see what has changed and what has not changed.
AO-27 is the second most popular with about 920 recordings. They are all edited to remove the part of the pass that is either silent or contains telemetry.
HO-68 is another bird which we all miss. There are 86 pass recordings to remember it by. Likewise there are 69 recordings of SO-67, a bird you could hear easily with a rubber duck antenna.
There are linear bird recordings as well but I don't post many since you have to tune around to pick up qso's and then stay with them for a bit. But they are there and some show how much like HF a linear bird can sound like when someone like UT1FG/MM shows up from a wet grid.
Now that VO-52 is back on I'll try to post some recordings of that one as well.
I'm not sure how much longer I'll continue to post these recordings. Many that could benefit from them don't know they are there.
73, John K8YSE
