I just listened on 145.825, with a handheld scanner, to a high elevation MIR
pass at 1623UT, 127W 47N. I didn't hear anything. Is the Sputnik still close to
MIR? I entered this thread late, does sputnik have a number? orbital elements?
Is 145.825 the correct frquency?
What is the power of the transmitter?
Is this an "exact" duplicate of the original Sputnik?
How long is it project to be operational?
