Sputnik One broadcast

Clear copy of AO-51 message and Sputnik transmission 
at 0001 UTC from my balcony with a three element hand held 
UHF antenna.

"Congratulations on the 50th anniversary of the launching of 
Sputnik One" followed by bursts of data.

We alerted the community here in Ottawa on a local repeater 
giving all coordinates and several stations copied and greatly 
enjoyed the exercise.

Thanks for the efforts.
