Delfi-C3 / DO-64 Status update October 14th 11:00 UTC

Hi all,

as announced earlier, today we have successfully switched the Delfi-C3
/ DO-64 satellite into basic mode. Delfi-C3 is currently transmitting
1200bit/s BPSK housekeeping telemetry on the primary downlink
frequency of 145.870MHz (contrary to our earlier announcement which
said 145.930MHz which is the other downlink transmitter). In this
mode, AX.25 frames containing housekeeping telemetry are transmitted
approx once every 4-5 secs, the rest of the transmission is filled
with idle flags. We would like to encourage everyone to receive,
decode and forward telemetry using the RASCAL software just like
during the first three months of science mission, this will be greatly
appreciated by the team. RASCAL can be downloaded at:


At this moment, we do not know how long the satellite will be in this
mode, but it will at least be a couple of weeks. We'll keep you
informed on our mission operations page at


and via the AMSAT-BB, and we will regularly post on and monitor the
OSCAR status page at


73 on behalf of the Delfi-C3 / DO-64 team,
