Recording from an SSB amateur satellite / 2014-09-26

2014-09-26 Recording from an SSB amateur satellite 5 years ago
No contacts, but some other firsts in radio amateur satellites for me yesterday evening. Using the digimode interface for the Yaesu FT-857 radio I recorded a pass of SO-50 in FM mode and a pass of AO-73 (Funcube-1) in SSB mode. And I was able to understand at least one callsign in the AO-73 downlink, which is also a first for me!

SO-50 Saudisat 1c recording at JO22nc, 2014-09-25 20:30 UTC. Callsigns heard: S56SG, DF9GH, DL2EEL, DO5BK, IW3RGK.
Most of these callsigns I can only decode now with having the option of listening to the recording again and again.

AO-73 Funcube-1 recording at JO22nc, 2014-09-25 20:50 UTC. Only one callsign heard while tuning through the downlink band: DG1EA but I heard the call clearly enough to understand it right away. A first for me.
