AubieSat-1 Launch information for 25 October 2011

Fellow satellite enthusiasts;

We fervently request your assistance in receiving transmissions from an
upcoming satellite, AubieSat-1, immediately after its launch from
Vandenberg AFB, California, USA, 25 October 2011 at 9:52 UTC.
AubieSat-1 (AS-1) is an undergraduate - built CubeSat satellite
developed by Auburn University.

AS-1 is designed to transmit with a power of about 800 milliwatts on a
frequency of 437.475 MHz, plus or minus Doppler correction. The beacon
signal, along with telemetry, will be sent using A1A continuous wave
Morse code at 20 words per minute. Additional telemetry from the
onboard science experiment will use CW transmissions up to 60 WPM.
