Re: apparent beacon on 435.300




I copied pretty much all the telemetry from that RS-30 one day, 
it had a pretty good signal all right!  Just up a few KC from 
AO-51 downlink. Maybe  435.312 and doppler down to 435.309.

It's RS-30, aka Yubileiny, on 435.315 and 435.215. Apparently there are
no 
two-way packages onboard, unfortunately. It's also unfortunate that the 
builders didn't coordinate their downlinks with the IARU, and they ended
up 
so close to the AO-51 downlink.
