The german section of the Mars Society is reporting that AMSAT received signals from Voyager 1 by their private 20 m-antenna in Bochum/Germany.

AMSAT obviously informed the JPL and got congratulations from them. The JPL also has said that they din't know that Voyager 1 still is working and transmitting.

Private organizations can be capable to do deep space communication it seems.

Wow, that's amazing. When Voyager was launched I was eight years old. I'm almost 40 now. :shock:
