DELFI-C3 rx report 2008-05-01



Hi,

Today tracked 7 passes of delfic3 all with good signals. The transmitter on 145.930 is random on
and off each pass but its always present. Tracking NORAD# 32787 matches AOS and LOS very well.
Interesting was pass 4 and 5 with low elevation. Signals where good and I could decode some
packets on pass 4. Received signals on pass 5 but decoded nothing because the tx switched on to
late (just before LOS).

I noticed in RASCAL a correlation between the distortion on the downlink system and the OBC System
bus voltage value. When the voltage showed 7~8 volts the distortion was present. It looks like the
distortion intervals has also a correlation to the satellite spin cycle.
