Re: Quakesat frames



Andy:

I use a PK-96 with "trace on" and "kiss off" and have been able to decode
Quakesat - you can see some examples by following the "Quakesat Decoded"
link on my homepage at http://kd4app.webhop.org/ - the date and time on
Quakesat has always been wrong AFAIK.  On that same page is a "DRAFT" of the
QSL card ( http://www.sunsunsun.net/kd4app/amsat/quakesat/prelim-telem.jpg )
that the Quakesat team was going to send - I'm not sure of the status of
that program.

Following Quakesat frames were received today 11 October 2003 07:10:32 UTC

Rig was TMD700E with Packcom, set KISS ON, TRACE ON, MON ON
Antenna was 9 ele linear fixed in azimuth and position to max elevation.
Rig set at 436.675 9600.

Hex files received were then run through

(thanks!)

with the following result:

Although the decode is far from complete - and I'd be interested to know
how to move from the Hex to a full decode, if anyone can help me - I notice
the date/time stamp is incorrect,the day month and year are completely
wrong, and the minute and second are running 27 seconds fast according to
my Junghans clock which is locked onto DCF77.

I wonder if the processor has reset?

Finally could anyone tell me where to get a QSL card from???
