It’s nice to hear the old lady’s voice again …
… launched in March 1984 on a Thor-Delta rocket from Vandenberg Air force base
Sunday 2215utc 24th June (Monday AM 25th June Australian Time)
Setting up for a pass of JO-97 and noted a very strong signal on 145.8250.
Looking at the waveform and listening to the audio it was an old favourite UO-11.
Many hours decoding telemetry from that bird when first launched.
Just listened not attempting to decode as it went over the horizon.
UO-11 was launched March 1984 on a Thor-Delta rocket from Vandenberg Air force base.
… it’s always nice to hear the old lady
… also back with good signals :-)
