RE: Safir-S



Hi Andrew,

I had an email conversation with Oliver Amend, DG6BCE, with the SAFIR-S team
and he passed on the following operation info. Copying the beacon will
present some interesting challenges.

As I understand Oliver, SAFIR-S transmits on 2401.9 MHz 10 to 20 minutes
passed each hour, 30-40 minutes passed the hour and 50-60 minutes passed
each hour. At the start of each 10 minutes transmit period it starts with a
10 to 15 sec FM voice transmission followed by 15 seconds of telemetry data.
This sequence is transmitted every 2 to 3 minutes during the 10 minute on
period.

Apparently they have received the signal and would appreciate signal
reports. You can send them to Oliver at DG6BCE@aatis.de.

I'll be listening for it here in Northern California during this evenings
(very) late passes.

Congratulations to all the satellite teams for providing us with some very
interesting reception challenges.

Regards...Bill - N6GHz
