Suit Sat lives!

Suit Sat, a space suit stuffed with a ham radio and tossed out to the International Space Station, was originally thought to be dead, but to it's batteries failing to withstand the cold of space. But now radio amateurs have reported picking up faint signals.

Can you see Suit Sat? Give it a try, it's almost in the same orbit as the ISS, so using Heavens Above or J-PASS to locate the ISS, and see if you can see Suit Sat tagging along. Radio amateurs should just tune in as the ISS goes by see the NASA site for tuning details.
