On Sun Nov 19 at 12:50 using an FT-60 handheld with an extended whip antenna I managed to hear the voice beacon of AO-91 on the 145.960 FM downlink. The pass was one with a 64 degree elevation. If you would like to give it a go, here is a site where you can input your location and it will calculate when the satellite will be near you. http://www.amsat.org/track/index.php Remember the signal is pretty weak so you will need to have your squelch off to hear it when it gets high in the sky over you.
