Hi Graham, G3VZV
Edusat has been built by students of the university "La Sapienza" in Roma
Italy but since no technical informations has been released and it transmit
only telemetry in GMSK when over Roma it seems that Edusat is not of
interest for the satellite amateur community but without the coordination
of the IARU Frequency Coordination Panel it seems that Edusat is another
bad strategy to use our frequency for private use without to pay for.
