Hi Giulio, AB2VY
Edusat is a "Non amateur satellite" ? ......OK ,but it has received an
experimental license on 435.750 MHz for communicating at no cost
into the "Satellite Amateur Frequencies" without coordination from
It is very strange that Edusat has received an experimental licence
for communications into the Satellite Amateur Band without a
frequency coordination from IARU
It is also very strange that the GAUSS group do not officially published
the operating frequencies of Edusat stating that those frequencies
published via internet are wrong frequencies.
It seems that there is no coordination between our Communication
Autority in Roma and IARU as well between the GAUSS group the
IARU and the Radio Amateur community.
In conclusion dear Giulio Edusat is a satellite not of our interest and
please forget the above box for shoe.
