CW Telemetry beacon, as decoded by FLDIGI here in CM98 on the 6/2 0600z
pass. My rotor controller doesn't do flipped operation, so the 3rd
frame got trashed by the rotor needing to swing around as the satellite
passed through North. Some errors in the frames, but for the most part,
during the frame itself, the signal was full quieting. It seemed like
the very front of the frame (call sign?) was at a low power setting,
then jumped up for the main part, and then at the end a few dits,
seconds apart, at low power.
This was my second attempt (first success) at copying the beacon. Hope
