Thanks for linking my blog, Scott. Unfortunately that's all we can do by

The satellite uses CBOR to compress the telemetry into small binary
packets. Some of the guys at Satellogic (the company that operates the
satellites) were going to send me some details, but nothing received so
far. Probably it's not so easy and they're busy enough.

The downside is that we don't even have a way to check that the packets
are received without bit errors. The last 4 bytes of the packet seem to
be the ones which vary the most, so kudos if someone can recognise that
as a CRC of the packet. I tried for a while, but got nothing.

By the way, it's 40k baud, not 38k4. It eats a huge chunk of spectrum
(about 80kHz).
