Hi All,

accoding to
http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/satellites/satInfo.php?satID=9&retURL=/satellites/status.php
the* Mode S Beacon of AO-7 is declared as  Non-Operational, while the
rest is declared as "Semi-Operational" ?

Does it makes sense to try to listen to the S band beacon on *2304.1 MHz ?
Some sources say, that this beacon was never turned on when AO-7 was
operational?

We could use or 20m dish in Bochum to listen to it, as we are going to
do some tests on S-band soon..
