At 10:00PM CDT August 1st at my QTH, I received two perfect images and most of a third on the downlink of 145.800 which are pictured below. Best of luck to all those decoding this weekend and rest in piece Mr. Garriott. Let us remember your accomplishments and ensure your sacrifices and contributions are not forgotten. Below is a gallery of today’s images.
Here’s a clip of what happened during the third image. very odd glitch in my opinion.
