    Default K8YSE's Satellite Recordings - 2 Year Anniversary

    Today marks the two year anniversary of my satellite
    recordings website. Since March 18th, 2010, there have
    been about 2800 recordings posted totalling about 1.9Gb.

    AO-51 is the most recorded satellite with 1358 files. It
    was a great bird and its demise was a great loss to the
    satellite community. But the sound from it is preserved.
    It's interesting to go back and listen to some of the older
    recordings to see what has changed and what has not changed.

    AO-27 is the second most popular with about 920 recordings. They
    are all edited to remove the part of the pass that is either silent
    or contains telemetry.

    HO-68 is another bird which we all miss. There are 86 pass
    recordings to remember it by. Likewise there are 69 recordings
    of SO-67, a bird you could hear easily with a rubber duck antenna.

    There are linear bird recordings as well but I don't post many
    since you have to tune around to pick up qso's and then stay
    with them for a bit. But they are there and some show how much
    like HF a linear bird can sound like when someone like UT1FG/MM
    shows up from a wet grid.

    Now that VO-52 is back on I'll try to post some recordings of
    that one as well.

    I'm not sure how much longer I'll continue to post these recordings.
    Many that could benefit from them don't know they are there.

    If you have not visited John's site, do it NOW. If you are in North America operating FM satellites, you should periodically go here to "check up" on your operating skill. We all have a lot to learn when listening to ourselves.

    John's site, the OSCAR satellite status page, AMSAT's pass prediction tool, and Chris Peat's are my most-recommended satellite websites.

    I agree. It's great to have recordings on there especially when the howling wind here makes it impossible for me to hear my recording. I also like being able to hear what I sound like on the sats to other people.

    Keep up the good work!

    Nice work John! I really appreciate you doing this and it was great making my first contact with you via SO-50 earlier this week.

    I'm surprized, thanks!
