VHF-2 (130.167 NFM) Now active for Soyuz Undock


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.

RS0ISS recordings?

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.

What was trailing ISS tonight??

Hi All,

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??

No signal on 10:44UTC 22/9 Pass - School QSO?

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?
