I was not sure yesterday evening, with MOVE-1, Duchifat and AO-73 all
around, but no doubt, PRATHAM is definitely alive. Congratulations !
The CW speed is fairly high, a little bit chirpy, all as we like. No
? :-) As I decode with my poor little human ham ears, I don't know
exactly, but I would say 40 wpm, something like that. A piece of my
record of the pass over western Europe, orbit nr 43 this morning at
about 1030 UTC, is here (with a GPA in the attic, the good old FCD-Pro+,
text is, of course, "VU2BUG PRATHAM IIT BOMBAY STUDENT SATELLITE"
The 2016-059C tle was used to compensate the Doppler drift and, as
you can hear, it's still not so accurate for the moment. But anyways...
Have a nice day, 73 !
