CW telemetry is similar, but not identical

All I can do is reproduce the exact text I have received. I'm told
convincingly that the cw sent is RS 28 and not 38 but I haven't been
listening for it myself. DK3WN's observations are the best that I know of.

I understand that DOKA can use two frequencies multiplexed for a higher
throughput : see my page on RS-30 at:


so I would expect that the two frequencies I have been given are centre
frequencies for two ranges, each capable of being chosen from the ground
station, depending on local qrm. 

I imagine that the main ground station is at Moscow state university with a
back up at Plis at Kaluga, who invented Doka. 

Other participating universities within the Russian Federation will also
have a DOKA groundstation (which may or may not be compatible), but the main
telemetry of the scientific payloads will be on 1.7 GHz, so I don't expect
you will hear DOKA if you are outside the footprint of >10 degrees elevation
from Moscow (it will be interesting if you do). 

Worldwide, I expect that the 435 MHz beacon when its frequency settles down
is now just a CW beacon of housekeeping data. And it is pretty likely that
the cw decode for the beacon is the same as rs-30 on my webpage.
