Anybody planning to attend the AMSAT/ARISS symposium in California? http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/symposium/
Bill McArthur will be delivering the keynote address http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/
Should be very interesting.

On my 19:48 UTC pass this evening (28 Sept) I copied very strong VHF-2 downlink - continiously from horizon to horizon. Mostly 59+60dB!.
If you listen out you may hear some of the undoc activity in the next hours directly.

Does anyone have a recording of RS0ISS from today, 9-27-06 during the 15:30 UTC pass over the US? I am looking for copies of my school's QSO from MI (N8MS). My computer that was recording at home suffered a power-loss so I was not able to record it! I was so disappointed when I got home and found out it did not record!
KB8PXV--I did see that you had most of my QSO on your website that you posted for Kenneth. Thanks. At least it wasn't a total loss.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have half a dozen kids that were so excited that I was asking their questions, they don't remember Ms Ansari's answers! We were all hoping to listen to the QSO again.
is the tracking map in the upper left hand corner stuck, i see it hasnt moved in a day or 2?
I have seen the ISS at night hundreds of times now, over the years.
However, on tonights pass (Sun 24th Sept '06) at @23.09 there was TWO crafts visible, both which appeared to be travelling at the same speed. They were both as bright as each other, and a little bit apart.
I know Atlantis was up there recently, but it landed last week...
I have trawled all the Astronomy and ISS sites to try and find out what the second craft was, without success.
Anyone able to enlighten me please??
I would like to Congratulate Ned VE6NED who lives west of Davidson, Sask. Canada for making Anousheh Ansari very first Amateur Radio Contact from the ISS.
For more info see:
I didn't hear any audio at all on the 10:44UTC pass, did anyone else have any luck - did the QSO actually happen as planned?
