I could ship the low proof stuff if I had the appropriate permits for -each- state.Yeah I figured as much. I am getting started in homebrewing beer and it isn't legal to ship either.
What's the ground footprint of that satellite? Is it LEO? So ground footprint of a few hundred miles? I left off at AO-27 (IIRC). I have no idea of what the current Amateur Oscar fleet is like.Talked to XW-2A Chinese Satellite with callsign Bravo Juliet 1 Sierra Bravo from my separate FCC callsign. I said hello from USA. Only got a mic click in return.
We had a really bad year for pears. 3 bushels for 16 trees on one of the picking days. Just two kinds left to pick. Gin and Hendre Huffcap. The Gin is pretty loaded - just slow to ripen.Picked half a box of baking apples off of our one pathetic, shaded tree. The most we have had in 17 years.
Andrew, a couple of questions for you:View attachment 362453 My satellite hunt of the day. Russian DX-1 satellite contact fail. ISS contact fail. UKUBE1 beacon success. XW-2C success. XW-2A success. Hearing static filled Chinese and no speak Engrish. Priceless. First move and Fun cube 1 fail. Eo88 beacon received.
There’s a whole lot of international cubesats with good north south orbits near daily. Some twice daily.
OK, now I'm calling you out. You understand Chinese, now? Since above you state Chinese with no English.Uplink is 70 cm HAM FM band. Must’ve been a Asian American ham operator because it was really funny joke. I fell over laughing man. The accent was there perfect. Downlink is FM. I’m picking beacons up from Canada and Atlantic sometimes.
