PROITERES – a strong carrier signal!!

Proiteres had been silent since last week.
Mr. Kazuo from Osaka Institute of Technology informed
me that the Proiteres satellite have some trouble of the power supply.
Today I’ve noticed a very strong and continuous   carrier.
It seems the transmitter was locked in keying mode!!
Short clip shows the strong carrier .

O/OREOS Telemetry

UTC 16:37 Orbit # 5,018 40 Packet frames was received . Signal was strong with occasional deep QSB .


TSUBAME is a 30kg class micro-sat planned for LEO to be
launched from Japan 2012. It's the fourth satellite development project
undertaken within the Laboratory for Space Systems at Tokyo Institute of
Technology. TSUBAME demonstrates a satellite platform that can be used for a
variety of engineering and scientific missions. The missions are as follows;

1. Demonstration of satellite bus technology for 30kg-class micro satellite
and verification of COTS components such as micro-processors, memory and
Li-ion batteries in the space environment

2. Verification of Control Moment Gyros developed by the Laboratory for
Space Systems

3. Demonstration of high-speed attitude manoeuvres technology using Control
Moment Gyros. Some sensor data acquisition experiments will be conducted
at the same time in order to demonstrate applications of CMGs.

4. Demonstration of SRLL communication protocol developed by Tokyo Institute
of Technology and high-speed GMSK data down-link
5. Data collection experiment through internet with the aid of radio amateurs
all over the world Proposing to use VHF for telecommand and UHF for
telemetry down-link and a CW beacon. CW beacon coordinated on 437.275MHz.
Down-link AX.25/SRLL, 1200bps AFSK telemetry on 437.505MHz, and S-band BPSK.

BUAA-SAT is a university micro-satellite project developed by the students of Beihang University.This student hand-on project is the first attempt to develop a low-cost, new technology demonstration and space scientific exploration, and quick response micro-satellite platform in China. The satellite will be put on a Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO) with an approximate altitude of 600km.

The primary missions are:
- To study the application of COTS components used in the onboard electronic system
- To demonstrate the coilable mast deployment mechanism
- To carry out imaging using three CMOS cameras

Moreover, it provides a 27dBm U/V FM voice transponder for the use of radio hams world-wide as well as a 20dBm CW beacon and a 27dBm AX.25 beacon also in the 145 MHz band.

ISS Amateur Radio CubeSats to Deploy September 27

JAXA have announced that the deployment of five CubeSats from the International Space Station (ISS) will take place on Thursday, September 27.

Four of the CubeSats carry Amateur Radio payloads, they are F-1, FITSAT-1, WE-WISH and TechEdSat.

The small satellites, just 10cm cubed, were transported to the ISS in the HTV-3 cargo vessel that blasted off on an H-IIB rocket from the Tanegashima Space Center on Saturday, July 21 at 02:06

They arrived at the ISS on July 27 and were unloaded by the Expedition 32 crew.

The CubeSats are mounted in a JEM-Small Satellite Orbital Deployer (J-SSOD). In one pod are FITSAT-1, TechEdSat and F-1 and in the second pod is WeWish and a scientific 2U CubeSat RAIKO. Japanese astronaut Akihiko Hoshide KE5DNI will use the ISS Kibo robot arm to deploy the pods as demonstrated in this video.

Atlas 5 rocket launch set to go today from California

After a six-week delay to unravel a puzzling Range software glitch, United Launch Alliance's Atlas 5 rocket will try again this afternoon to deploy a classified national security payload and batch of hitchhiking cubesats into space from California. Liftoff is targeted for 2:39 p.m. local time (5:39 p.m. EDT; 2139 GMT).
