Thanks to the efforts of new member Ed, KN6DBC, improvements have been made to www.amsat.org/statushttp://www.amsat.org/status, specifically, some filtering of the "Your Callsign" field has been added in an effort to reject the occasional nonsense report. The entry must look like a callsign, for example it must have at least one digit, it must not end with a digit etc.
As a bonus, the"Your Grid Square" field has been added. Separate entries are now preferred instead of workarounds like KM1P-FN42.
AMSAT maintains this page to give a single global reference point for all users in the Amateur Satellite Service to show the most up-to-date status of all satellites as actually reported in real time by users around the world. Please help others and keep it current every time you access a bird.
