PSAT heard, two frames of telemetry. Command received. Multiple other
burn-countdown packets were received till second burn attempt (though first
burn worked or we wouldn’t have any antennas!
So, TNC, RX and TX has been confirmed working. Won’t know about CPU until
after 2nd Burn countdown next pass.
USER ACCESS **NOT** authorized.
Did not listen for PSK31 yet on 435.350
(both other UHF’s were listening for other spacecraft).
T#039 and T#040 were the two telemetry’s received. So spacecraft had been
operational for 39 minutes. That places activation at about 13:57 EDT over
New Zealand (about 2 hours before sunup there).
