Give the satellite to radio amateurs for experiments. Why Not? The Gift for 300 Billions USD :)
Controllers in Contact with Russian Satellite Dropped Off in Useless Orbit
The Russian Express-AM4 satellite launched Aug. 18 into a bad orbit is communicating normally with ground controllers, has partially deployed its solar arrays, pointed to the sun and is in a safe and stable standby mode,...
Amazing. "OSCAR-7" still ALIVE (!)
This satellite is ancient! Batteries died in the early 80s and the thing's still going on the ancient solar panels. Simply & awesome.
Sun wakes up from sleep for busiest sunspot cycle in years and threatens to disrupt Earth communications and power.
This astonishing sequence of images shows a dramatic 'flare' bursting out from the sun which could affect satellite communications and power supplies here on Earth. The spectacular development unleashed a radiation firestorm on a level not seen for five years which is expected...
The mega-filament collapsed in a gorgeous cascade of hot plasma between noon and 2 p.m. EST. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a beautiful movie of the eruption (above). The explosion does not appear to be aimed at Earth, so we shouldn’t expect any magnetic storms or satellite troubles.
LISTEN SPACEWEATHER RADIO (Live) Live Radar Audio Feed--how do we do it? It's simple. The Air Force Space Surveillance Radar transmits a 216.98 MHz signal into the heavens 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Meteors, satellites and spacecraft passing overhead reflect those signals back down to Earth. The radar's primary antenna is located near Lake Kickapoo, Texas. A few hundred miles away in Roswell,...
Накопал замечательный документик в формате PDF, в котором рассписаны практически все частоты, используемые NASA для пилотируемых космических (и не только) программ. В свое время слушал ЦУП на частоте 143.800 кГц. FM. Было хорошо...
