Tom et al,

According to old records, BADR-1 did not use Morse code groups but 
transmitted telemetry using a digital system similar to that of UO-11 
(UoSAT 2), since several of the Pakistani engineers who built it had 
trained at UoS.  Based on this difference I would think it unlikely that it 
is Pakistani.  The use of 3-letter Morse telemetry suggests Russian origin.
