Hi all,


If you hear the COMPASS-1 beacon on 437.275 MHz (CW) please report your
results to us.


There is a simple decoder to download here:


compass ff073900070300210000a300ff


this "1" means - heater ON


In this case you can try to send the important command ****#14#200#. And the
other ones as well..

COMPASS is in emergency mode - so the beacon comes every 8 minutes.  Please
listen and have a little patience :-)


Thank you very much for your efforts,


73, Mike
