Signals… from space?


none other than. yesterday, i attempted to record some very weak signals for the amateur satellite, ECHO AO-51, with my trusty Yaesu VX-3R. most of my attempts had been unsuccessful until i bought an additional Nagoya N-771 antenna to accompany the tiny 2m/70cm dual band radio. however, i have intercepted the signals from the low-earth orbiting satellite now on three separate occasions. the recording is definitely the weakest of the signals though due to a very low elevation in this particular pass and the interference created by the computer itself. hopefully, i’ll have a better one before long.
