Summer barbeques as the evening gets later I sit looking up into the sky watching the Satellites going across the sky. I always try and spot the 3 that follow each other at uniform distance. I always get funny looks until I show people what I’m actually looking at.
I have spotted some of the OSCAR satellites that I used to use back in the 1970's and 80's, I think it was OSCAR 6 and 7. It used to be great fun calculating the orbits and predicting when it was passing overhead and having to keep retuning the receiver to keep up with the Doppler shift as the satellite approached then started to go low in frequency as it went down range. It was very strange to hear you voice coming back after a slight delay, it was most off-putting if you were trying to talk to someone.
