Hi All,

I too was listening for PROITERES, and made a recording today (Sep 10th 
11:15UTC) using my FunCube Dongle.
Looking at the spectrum display, I could see the distinctive pattern of two 
satellites transmitting.
It turns out that the orbit of SEEDS II (CO-66) was almost in perfect 
alignment with PROITERES, and was also transmitting its morse code beacon on 
I heard 'JQ1YGU SEEDS G4 3475BFB0 D83 FFE CCA 189 8ED 35F' etc. from SEEDS.
See http://cubesat.aero.cst.nihon-u.ac.jp/english/seeds_2_e.html

It is possible that some people listening for PROITERES today have actually 
mistakenly heard SEEDS II, as I found it a few dB stronger at times.
The two satellites will drift apart over the next 2 days.
