COMPASS-1 beacon



Hi all,

 

If you hear the COMPASS-1 beacon on 437.275 MHz (CW) please report your
results to us.

 

There is a simple decoder to download here:

compass ff073900070300210000a300ff

                       ^

this "1" means - heater ON

 

In this case you can try to send the important command ****#14#200#. And the
other ones as well..

COMPASS is in emergency mode - so the beacon comes every 8 minutes.  Please
listen and have a little patience :-)

 

Thank you very much for your efforts,

 

73, Mike

DK3WN
