1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Shes still up there - lost forever with burned out transistors.
Sounds like a job for Astro and Nextsat to me were they pnp or npn transistors I can probably let then have replacements from my 40 year old componant box

(right click and "save target as" using IE)

Its hard to understand the excitement the new satellite caused these days when we can easily watch 3 or 4 launches a year live. I somehow cant see a record being created to commermorate the launch of Hotbird 9 next year..... :(

Rolfw's is the original, Analoguesat's is a poor copy. I wore mine out by playing it too often. It used to be played over the tanoy when we were re-equipting Goonhilly One back in the 60's.
