Amsat-OSCAR 51 or Echo as it is more commonly known is a FM satellite carrying 4 VHF receivers, 2 UHF transmitters, a multimode receiver and a 2400MHz transmitter. It can handle voice and FSK data up to 76.8Kbps. Echo was launched into a low, sun-synchronous polar orbit approximately 850 km high. It is planned for operational turnover on 30 July 2004 at approximately 0215z. You must transmit a 67Hz PL tone in order to access the Echo voice repeater.

Please note the change in operational phone downlink frequency to 435.300 MHz.
