Hi my friends,
With illuminated solar panels, the signal was better this morning
than yesterday evening on this pass over western Europe at about 0830
UTC (orbit number 33392) and I was able to copy some whole frames.
08:28:20 UTC, full telemetry frame then silence ;
08:30:50 UTC, only the letter B then silence ;
08:35:35 UTC, two full telemetry frames and the begining of the next one
(after that, silence). The record of these two and a half frames is here:
and the content here:
BJ1SA XW XW AAA TTT AVN VNE ETT TTT TTT TTT TTT TTT TTT TTT TTT XW XW
BJ1SA XW XW AAA TTT AVN A6E ETT TTT TTT TTT TTT TTT TTT TTT TTT XW XW
BJ1SA XW XW AAA TTT AVN VNE ETT T
channel 1: AAA ==> 111 ==> PA number 2 is the one working ;
channel 2: TTT ==> 000 ==> beacon mode only ;
channel 3: AVN ==> 139 ==> TX temperature + 39 deg. C ;
channel 4: VNE ==> 395 and A6E ==> 165 ==> beacon RF output power, large
range from 395 to 165 and again 395 milliwatts ;
channel 5: ETT ==> 5.00 volts ;
all other channels are zero.
Have a nice day, 73, long life again to Xiwang-1!
