Using a HyGain v-2 vertical VHF antenna at 35 feet in the air. Radio is a

Good work on your project!

Thank you Pat for the effort! Please help us to continue tracking F-1 CubeSat
on 437.485 (in daylight) and 145.980 (in darkness). Both in FM Narrow mode.
And check the new TLE for F-1!

More CW on 145.980 between 10:44 PM and 10:49 PM on October 9, 2012.
Times are Eastern Daylight time. I am in Madison, Florida at an elevation of
170 feet above sea level. Coordinates: 30-27-56 N and -83-24-08 W. This is
very near the Georgia border in north Florida. Still using the V-2 vertical
antenna and Kenwood TM-271A radio. I took video of the radio receiving the
signal with good audio. Is there a way to email that .avi file to you?

If the avi file is less than 15MB please send it directly to my email address
firstname.lastname@example.org otherwise please upload it to YouTube or an online file
sharing website (such as http://www.sendspace.com/) and send me the link.
However, please note that F-1 transmit telemetry packets (AFSK modulation)
on 145.980MHz using FM mode not CW. It has a PWM Morse code audio beacon
on 437.485MHz (only operates in daylight) but also in FM Mode.
