Some Cute 1.7-APD Telemetry Help

Hello all,

First - congratulations to the Cute 1.7-APD team for what looks like a
sucessful launch (writing this at 2210Z 2/21/2006).

The latest keps are as follows:

Cute-1.7 + APD(Prediction 22/Feb/2006)
1 99999U          06052.90648148  .00001572  00000-0  21098-4 0 00000
2 99999 098.3902 061.3542 0334334 136.9363 063.7801 15.12846262000013

Go to their web site at
http://lss.mes.titech.ac.jp/ssp/cute1.7/software_e.html for the latest
version (ver 0.2) of the CW telemetry decoding software.

Enter data only in "House Keeping" without space between hex data: ie
89D0A76820472FBCA7A01F, without CUTE as shown in the accompanying text file.

If entered properly, the following will be displayed in the CW telemetry


Voltage of 3.3V system is 3.309 [V]
Voltage of 5V system is 5.025 [V]
Voltage of battery is 4.034 [V]
Voltage of main bus is 3.768 [V]
Length of SRLL is 32
Temperature of communication board is 69.371 ['C]
Temperature of battery is22.990 ['C]
Current of battery is 295.479 [A]
S meter of 144MHz is 2.017 [V]
S meter of 1.2GHz is 1.933 [V]

APD 3.3V A power is turned off
APD 3.3V B power is turned off
APD main power is turned off
DAQ power is turned on
USB2Serial converter power is turned on
TH-59 power is turned on
CW power is turned on
DJ-C5(TX) power is turned on


Since I only have 17" monitor the bottom of the program couldn't be display
on screen so I just did a right mouse buttom click, selected all then copied
and put in into a word processor.

Not sure how long after launch the CW (100mw at 437.385MHz) will be turned
on but the satellit is due over the East Coast in about an hour from when
this is being written.

Again, congratulation Cute 1.7-APD team. We'll be listening!

Regards...Bill - N6GHz
