Hi Bob !
That is Cute-1.7 + APD II.
More information on that satellite:
Both Compass and Cute share the same frequency (437.275MHz)
Due to doppler you hear they sometimes both.
Compass CW tones sound a bit distorted, I wouldn't know how to
express that in English, once you heared both you'll remember.
This is how Compass sounds like (recorded 1 day after launch):
This is Cute:
Thanks for help monitoring Compass !
> I was trying to copy the Compass-1 CW beacon tonight. About halfway
through the pass, I started copying CW about 5 kHz above where I
expected Compass-1 to be. It kept repeating "CUTE" and 2-number groups..
it's far off any of the published frequencies of any of the CO- birds..
anybody have any idea what I have copied?
I have the telemetry copied if anyone wants it, too much to write out
