Hi Peter,

Here is a short overview what you can actually hear if you are interested in
to collect telemetry:

OSCAR IO-26                              1k2 BPSK, sporadic 5 bursts
Fuji OSCAR FO-29                         CW
AMRAD OSCAR AO-27                        1k2 AFSK scheduled
GURWIN OSCAR GO-32                       9k6 FSK  1 burst every 30 sec
NavSat OSCAR 44                          1k2 AFSK only in sunlight 1 burst
every 1 min
AMSAT OSCAR-E AO-51                      9k6 FSK  scheduled
KKS-1                                    CW
STARS (Mother)                           CW
PRISM                                    CW
HOPE OSCAR HO-68                         CW
CubeSat OSCAR CO-57 (XI-IV)              CW
CubeSat OSCAR CO-58 (XI-V)               CW
CUBESAT OSCAR CO-55 (CUTE-I)             CW
COMPASS-1                                CW beacon every 4 min
SEEDS                                    CW
DELFI-C3                                 1k2 BPSK only in sunlight
SwissCube                                CW
RS-22                                    CW
RS-30                                    CW
GeneSat-1                                1k2 AFSK

You can see - it's the best way to start with CW satellites. The most of
them are sending telemetry continuously.

73, Mike

Betreff: [amsat-bb] Telemetry for a newbie

Hi all,

My Gulf antenna arrived last week and togther with my recently aquired
FT-736 I should be up and running within the month.

My initial reason for building my satellite station was to receive and
decode telemetry from the sats, hoping to monitor their condition over a
period of time. I realise that some transmit TLM via morse, some via AX25,
and some via 96K packet.

What would be the best sat to start with, especially AX25? - Does AO51 send
TLM all the time or only over the USA? What resource is the best for
reading? Does the F&-736 need modifying for high speed packet reception?

Many thanks for any help.
