Now that the ATV3 supply vehicle has launched with supplies to the ISS, Heavens Above are now showing the visible pass times (pre-dawn). Should be interesting to watch the cat and mouse chase with the ISS once again.

All the best

Hello Dave,

Meant to post this last weekend, but life intervened!

Managed to pick up some pings and whistles about 5 or 10 mins after the HA pass predictions on the Staurday morning pass (March 24th, either 07:22 or 08:58, sadly I didn't note it down at the time and my memory is a bit hazy now as to which it was). I wondered if it might have been connected to the supply vessel playing catch up with the ISS.

All the best,
