AMSAT SPECIAL BULLETIN
AMSAT NEWS SERVICE BULLETIN 361.02 FROM AMSAT HQ
SILVER SPRING, MD, DECEMBER 26, 2000
TO ALL RADIO AMATEURS
AMSAT-NA President Robin Haighton, VE3FRH, provided ANS with
the following statement regarding AO-40's recent S-band transmissions
on 2401.305 MHz:
The excellent news of contact with AO-40 through the L-band uplink
and S-band downlink has been received with joy and relief by AMSAT
members around the world. AMSAT-DL issued a bulletin giving the news
that everyone had hoped for on Christmas day, a fantastic gift to the
Amateur Radio community.
On behalf of the AMSAT-NA Board of Directors, I wish to congratulate
all those concerned in the recovery effort. While we all realize that this
is just the first step in many, without making this initial 2-way contact
with AO-40, recovery would not be possible. The recovery procedures
are a true team effort between Project Leader Karl Meinzer, DJ4ZC,
the command stations and the other members of the P3D/AO-40 team.
In conclusion, I wish the team continued success, and I am sure that all
of our thoughts are with them as they continue to work on behalf of
AMSAT members world wide.
Robin Haighton, VE3FRH
Stay tuned to ANS for additional bulletins from AMSAT, the
