It was a clear evening last night, and the international space station was due to pass almost directly overhead (86º peak). Below is an image of the pass. My antennas are visible (Doublet, 70MHz dipole and X-50).
I’m still yet to receive any signals from all those other solar systems!
On July 20th 2009, AMSAT marked the 40th anniversary of the linar landing, by transmitting a looped audio and SSTV image. Here is the audio and SSTV image I recieved from AO51 satellite, 435.300MHz on 20th July 2009. 1729 GMT.
SSTV Image received Robot 36 format.
Press PLAY above, to hear the audio I received with an FT-817ND and homemade 7 element handheld yagi 435.300MHz
This is my homemade beam for receiving AO51. Wooden boom with bicycle spoke directors/reflector and a coathanger as a driven element! 4:1 coax balun. AO51 is a signal 7 on a good pass with the FT-817ND.
