OSCAR 100 Geosynchronous Satellite Video

I guess the title for this post could also be "How the Other Half Lives."  I'm sure at least a few of you will be thinking about building an OSCAR 100 station after watching this video.  But if you are in North or South America (with the exception of the Eastern tip of Brazil), forget about it.  OSCAR 100 is geostationary over the other side of the planet.  And amateurs have no equivalent on this side of the world.  But we can listen in using the Web SDRs. 

A couple of interesting bits from this recording.  You can hear G7BTP's coming back from the satellite with a bit of a delay -- he is obviously monitoring the downlink when he is transmitting.  DL8FBH says that he doesn't have a receive system of his own -- he is using a WEB SDR station (as I was) for the receiver.
