Hi All,

TIsat-1 HB9DE is to be launched aboard the Indian PSLV-C15
                  on 12th July 2010
from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota (SDSC-SHAR),
Andhra Pradesh, India.

The lift off is at 03:52 UTC and the TIsat-1 is to be injected
into orbit around 04:11 UTC.
The CW beacon would be transmitting at the earliest at 04:26 UTC,
15 minutes after separation from the launcher.
Beacon Frequency is 437.305 MHz (400 mW).

The predicted TLE for TIsat-1 is as follows:
1 99998U 10034Y   10193.17708333  .00002592  00000-0  35304-3 0 00007
2 99998 098.1177 252.3288 0008033 272.0048 315.2117 14.78702228001648

During its first orbit, starting about 04:50 UTC, stations around West
and North Mexico, Western Coast of US, followed by Canada, Alaska, North
and Central Asia  would be able to receive the beacon signal.

We kindly request stations over these regions to listen on to the beacon
frequency and provide us with their valuable reports. This help would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
