The packet data downlink is presently operational at 145.870. It is extremely strong from AOS/LOS.
When the amateur transponder is activated, A CW beacon will be at 145.870 in place of the packet data signal. It sends "HI HI DELFIC3 in CW."
I recently emailed wouterw at delfic3.nl asking when the satellite would be put back into the amateur mode. I have received no reply.
It's the holidays at the university so I really do not expect an answer at this point in time so maybe after the new year.
Unlike just after launch when transponder signals were strong, I have recently been having difficulty getting a signal through the transponder. I would like to experiment more so I'm waiting and hoping.
All the best,
