SO-50 SAUDISAT-1C
Catalog number: 27607
Launched: December 20, 2002

Status: Operational.

Uplink: 145.850 MHz (67.0 Hz PL tone) (See below for operating
procedures)
Downlink: 436.795 MHz

Mode and Antenna Polarization:
V: Linear
U: Linear

Official Webpage: http://saudisat.kacst.edu.sa/index.shtml
(not up and running currently)

To switch the transmitter on, you need to send a CTCSS tone of 74.4 Hz.
The
order of operation is thus: (allow for Doppler as necessary)
1) Transmit on 145.850 MHz with a tone of 74.4 Hz to arm the 10 minute
timer
  on board the spacecraft.
2) Now transmit on 145.850 MHz (FM Voice) using 67.0 Hz to PT the
repeater
  on and off within the 10 Minute window.
3) Sending the 74.4 tone again within the 10 minute window will reset
the 10
  minute timer.

During the period 15 June to 17 July 2006 nothing has been heard from
the
satellite.  It was last heard on 05 May, just one day before the solar
eclipses were due to start. These eclipses will continue until 04 August
2006, reaching a maximum duration of 22% around 19 June. If the
satellite
behaves in the same way as it did last year, regular 10 day
transmissions
should re-start, sometime in August.
