R: SETI Calibration at Arecibo Observatory



Hi Al, KP3A

I would like to know if on day 21st, March,2002 the EME transmission from
the Arecibo Observatory has been made or not on 1296.000 MHz at 18:30 EST
for a period of 60 minutes

Same question for day 22st,March,2002 at 17:30 EST for a period of 60
minutes.

For the future i suggest to specify the UTC time instead of EST time and
also the exact frequency for the experiment.

1296.000 MHz can be intended in two ways,the 1296.000 MHz band or the
frequency of transmission and this creates uncertainty for those operators
using small low gain antennas and receiving systems at the lower end of
reception capability.

Waiting for your info tank you very much for your help
