Hello Mineo,

I hope all goes well with the launch; these are certainly interesting 
satellites. Since many of the webpages are in Japanese only, do you know if 
there are any two way packages that might eventually be made available to 
amateurs worldwide?

I noticed the CW beacons are mostly clustered within 190khz of each other. 
That is fortunate, and I'd like to think by design? I intend to record some 
of the initial passes via my SDR-IQ, which may be helpful in sorting out the 
initial keplerian elements based on Doppler shift.

73 and good luck to JAXA,
Drew KO4MA
