I heard the beacon of the XW1 during the 16:32 UTC pass on 15th
Dec.VU2BJZ,VU2WMY and VU2GUR also heard the CW beacon. The signals were good
right from AOS to LOS. The CW telemetry said that the beacon RF output power
was 123 mw and the beacon power supply was as 0.65 volts. I used the
telemetry decode application provided by the XW1 team.
Recording of the telemetry signal can be found at

decoding application showing the data at
Congratulations AMSAT China on the successful launch and all the very best
for the testing and activation of the payloads.
