Athenoxat-1 beacon puzzles round 4

Dear friends,

It's been a while and hope this email finds you well. We'd like to inform that we've just enabled the new round of Athenoxat-1 beacon puzzles.
Beacon puzzles is the regular data beacon from Athenoxat-1 with specific type 3.
It contains 10 frames per burst every minute (30sec interval alternating with Morse CW).

It has a slight difference from the previous rounds and therefore we consider this experience as part of the in-orbit test. Hopefully it'll go smoothly.

The kss files containing the frames can be submitted through the usual address
Any number of frames are very useful for reconstructing the images. Thus we're hoping that stations with low elevation passes will still be able to participate.
Our website will be updated daily and can be viewed here:

For the stations around our control station (in Singapore), please keep tuning in as the satellite stays beaconing although it may seem appear busy in comm.operation.
The only apparent change is that you may not hear the Morse CW once our comm.operation starts.

Please let us know if you need any clarifications or help in setting up some software for receiving Athenoxat-1 packets.
Please feel free to inform others who may be interested and able to listen to Athenoxat-1.
We are looking forward to your kss files then.

Thank you in advance for listening, and have a good weekend.
