The transponder was on over ZL this morning 2036UT pass with weak signals
from transponder downlink and beacon.

Active again on the 2212UT pass with very good signals from both transponder
downlink and beacon.

Appears to have a 6kHz offset on the downlink.

Delfi-C3 Tranponder now activated over Europe

The Delfi-C3 435 to 145 MHz SSB/CW transponponder has now been activated.. 

It will be switched on duing this weekend whenever it is within range of
Europe and will automatically switch back to science (telemetry) mode when
it goes into eclipse about 1 hour later. 

This means that only those within range of the European passes will be able
to use it. 

The Delfi-C3 team will be giving presentations on their exciting new
satellite during the AMSAT-UK Colloquium taking place at the University of
Surrey, home of the Surrey Space Centre. 

The presentations start at 09:05 am (0805GMT) on Saturday July 26th and will
