Clayton, Is the downlink at 447.220 as recently reported? From earlier reports, it seemed to be around 457.200 as dome (might have Bern you) were hearing it at LOS near 447.191. Hoping to give it a try Wednesday.

About a dozen stations were heard making contacts on LilacSat-2 at 00:11Z, orbit # 135. From my QTH in Texas, EM21, I was hearing stations as far north as EN37. This orbit put LilacSat-2 almost directly up the center of the USA. I was able to make several contacts using 5 watts and an Elk antenna.
