OPAL beacon



The new satellites OPAL etc. were launced at 03:03UTC, Jan 27, 2000.
I received today, Jan 29, 08:36-08:50UTC(17:36-17:50JST), the strong
signals from OPAL with WiSP3213.

OPAL
1 26062U 00004B   00027.45125258  .00000224  00000-0  10000-3 0    39
2 26062 100.2321 224.0966 0041263 186.8169 173.3846 14.34291359    48


Downlink frequency is 437.100MHz (437.108-437.092MHz, 9600bps FSK).
I noticed that the beacon was transmitted 38bytes every 10 seconds.

I put this KISS logfile and WiSP image in my Home Page below.
