Hi all,


we need your help !


COMPASS-1 is in emergency mode since Sunday night. The battery voltage is
very low and the satellite is rebooting every pass. The CW beacon is on in
sunlight - but only in 8 minutes interval.

We need telemetry - so much as possible. Could you help us please and listen
to COMPASS on 437.275 MHz?

Any reports are very appreciated. You can find a simple CW telemetry decoder
on my website www.dk3wn.info/software.shtml (also mp3 or wav files are

Please send your reports to compass1cubesat at googlemail.com or post via this

Thank you very much in advance - on behalf the COMPASS-team
