Hi David and BB,
We hope to release a development version of the BPSK/CW decoding software
next week. We don't have the schedule specifics of the 12 April
transmissions yet. These will be posted on the AMSAT and ARISSat1 web sites
The transmissions on the 12th will see ARISSat-1 in low power mode, this
means 40-60 secs on, 2 minutes off.
It should be a challenge to find and tune the CW signal then decode some
BPSK data during the short on times. This mode was developed to be used when
the batteries are low or the satellite is in eclipse. We will be collecting
data and information to improve the BPSK demodulating, decoding and display
software. FUNcube Dongle users are encouraged to capture and record the
downlink signals, then send us the files for examination. More information
on where to send the files next week.
Additional information should be available later next week on the AMSAT and
ARISSat1 web sites as well as the AMSAT BB.
