I need some help to observe the RS-15 satellite. As we know, the beacon is still transmitting. Sometimes a simple carrier, sometimes some beep digits.
Before I explain my experience, I have to say I have a noisefloor of absolutely zero due me qth out in to the countryside.
Anyway, today the beacon was very strong and I tried to transmit on the 2m Uplink some CW signs. I guess I could hear some parts of my own signal. During the transmitting period I changed very slow my frequency and the tone of the downlink changed as well. Maybe I´m wrong but I tried that some times and the result was the same.
I do have a good receiver for 10m but my 2m uplink was only 50Watt into a K5OE eggbeater.
I´m looking for someone with a strong 2m uplink to try this out. One again, maybe I´m wrong but I guess the transponder is working at the first 15 KHz, but extremely weak.
I there anyone out, the do some research as well?
Could that happen?
