JNU strong signal over Australia. Pass 11:30 UTC 12.10.2011 44 degrees.
Telemetry string is something like this: #aavjugnumpmppdiafaateaaaahbzxvaaagg# Not sure if that makes sense ?

Dear friends,

As you all might be aware that two cubesats 'Jugnu' and 'SRMSat' using  
amateur frequencies are to be launched by PSLV C-18 from Satish Dhawan  
Space Centre [SDSC], Shriharikota, India. The expected launch time is  
05:30 UT.

In this regard, I'm herewith forwarding the mail from Mr. Shantanu  
Agarwal, Team Lead for the 'Jugnu', requesting the Global Amateur  
Radio fraternity to provide the CW Beacon signal Report along with the  
plain decoded morse message, if possible.

Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated, as this would be  
very helpful to evaluate various ob-board system performance.

'Jugnu' beacon is at 437.275 MHz, OOK.

The reports can be sent to the following mail ID.s
wmy at isac.gov.in[1]
shantag at iitk.ac.in[2]

The predicted TLE's:

1 99999U 11072A  11285.24724444  .00001785  00000-0  96625-3 0  1235
