Recorded while I was traveling this morning, you can hear my GPS telling me where to turn and some other road noise, not bad, near the end I start to wonder what my GPS is doing, since I hit a detour and it didn't make since. Anyways, This was suppose to be some quick feedback for a podcast that I found recently, and it turned in to about 45mins of my random thoughts on the whole Fringe series, so I decided that it needed to be posted in it's raw format, and either people will think I am a idiot or they will find something cool in my random thoughts... I have more, I didn't get to them all - but decided to cut it "short" because my GPS was just confusing me!
Hope you enjoy my random Fringe thoughts.
I was tuning around this morning at about 8am, i heard this signal -- it was on 6.727 LSB
I googled that and found a few sites pointing to the Shuttle - ok - thought it was interesting - at this time 8ish I only heard it on LSB - a little while later I was at my wifes work waiting and I heard it again on 6.727 LSB I looked around gain at USB digital CW filiter ect... I found the same or wht sounds like the same on USB 6.725 very strong - not on AM or FM (very very weakly hear it on AM) -
there is some comments as I switch modes and what not.
I cant get it to decode with anything I have - I dont know what this is maybe military maybe the shuttle
It started to fade out around noonish - and gone at 1pm -- at 6pm when I picked my wife up from work it was very strong again on both USB and LSB
this is the recording I made around 10 this morning EDT
I don't know what I am hearing here - it was very anonying - very strong...when I relistened to the audio I think I even hear data?
I don't know.
This pass was from the North West to the South East, I wouldn't think that would have anything to do with it - but is the first time I tried the SO50 coming from the North - it was at max 55 degrees - I was in my mom's back yard.
Thanks to AE5NL - and linux I now have MP3 editing software and I shorten this so - it starts at about 5 or 6 minutes into the pass that was at 2230UTC goes for 7 - 8 mins, which is the rest of the pass.
This is the audio of me using my HT and the rubber duckie - WA4NVM sent it to me after I couldn't figure out who returned my call - His pass started a little early then mine, but at about 9 mins into the recording you can clearly hear me call (KD8BXP EM79 on a Rubber Duckie) - someone comes back - KD8COA - I heard them come back, but couldn't make it out -thanks to this recording I see I not only got in once but twice and KD8COA came back to me a 2nd time - still I didn't hear the 2nd call.
Thank You Rick for the Help in figuring out the mystery!
WOW! It works! - I got three contacts today -
K4DLG - EL97 -David
K8YSE - EN91 - John
and ND9M - FM06 (Today) - Jim
GREAT DAY! Audio is fairly clear and easy to hear, thanks for welcoming me to the satellites!
SO50, 17 June 2009, 0007UTC - AOS Azimuth 326, Maximum elevation 76, Max EL azimuth 213
LOS Azimuth 154, LOS 0021UTC
It is pouring down rain here, but I really really wanted to work this again! -- I didn't get setup, didn't bring my camera out, and stood on the door floor board of my van holding the radio up in the air - and moving the antenna horiztal and vertical. When it came up to about 22 degrees or so I started to hear it -
much easier to correct for doppler when all you are wanting to do is listen.
I followed for a little bit - everyone says that SO50 is a quite bird - I think it is quite loud, and quite easy to find relitively speaking (Granted I've only tried on the high passes)
And I know this just would not have worked if it was a low pass.
For give the static for like 8 or 9 mins, I don't have anyway to edit MP3s and my digital recorder records in MP3 format - nice unless something like this is going on.
Enjoy! - I wish I had a picture of me doing this...but that will have to wait till next time -
maybe next time I try to talk without my arrow!
