Re[2]: Cute-1 frequencies



Hello All,

I'm Kazuya Konoue, CubeSat "CUTE-I" project team.

Our CUTE-I is still active.
The downlink frequencies are
 CW beacon:	436.8375 MHz (Always Active)
 FM Packet:	437.470 MHz  (Active over Japan)

CUTE-I starts downlinking packets when it receives 'Send Packet' command
from a ground station. And CUTE-I stops sending packets 
after a certain time, up to 25min. 
This is aimed at making sure to turn off the FM transmitter 
and thus saving energy in the battery. Currently only we command CUTE-I 
to send packets, so CUTE-I sends packets just in Japan footprint.
Under the license given to us, only our station is permitted to 
send commands to operate CUTE-I. 
Therefore FM packets is active only over Japan.

Details of CUTE-I is shown at following website.

Sincerely,
Kazuya
