I am posting this mail on behalf of the StudSat 'Team Lead'.
'StudSat' is to be launched aboard the Indian PSLV C 15 on 12th July
2010. The lift off is at 03:52 Z and the StudSat is to be injected
into orbit around 04:12 Z. The CW beacon would be 'ON' at 04:42 Z, ie
30 minutes after separation from the launcher.
Beacon Frequency is 437.861 Mhz (10 mW).
During its first pass, around 04:50 Z, stations around west and
North Mexico, Western Coast of US, Canada, Alaska, and North Asia
would be able to receive the beacon signal.
We request stations over these regions to kindly listen on to
the beacon frequency and provide us with their valuable reports. These
initial reports are the only means for us to confirm on the 'Beacon
ON' until it is visible over VU land. This help would be greatly
Thanks in advance.
