Receiving LES-1

After reading some information on this satellite and the fact that its transmitter had become active again, I made some preparation to see if I could receive this flying museum piece.

LES-1 is launched from Cape Canaveral on February 11th 1965.

Below the results from my reception attempts on December 12th 2015 at 09:11 UTC
