Update: If launch is successful, deployment will be in T+10 or so, a fairly
rapid deployment! First transmissions shortly thereafter! I think that
means a lucky radio station over which the spacecraft will be flying
(possibly, Pacific Rim/US West Coast) will be getting first transmission
shortly (in five/six hours) from now.

Tip: Register your ham station/radio station at http://www.phonesat.org
also a tip from the Phonesat team:

You need to decode the sound to Ascii first. If you can do this, then use
> the decoder from the website.
> If not, just send us the Audio and we will do it.
> The Phonesat Decoder is accessible online from the website, nothing to
> download.

Hello AMSAT community

some hams have requested information about the upcoming Phonesat mission
telemetry format. This is a challenging objective for those who can track
and monitor: there are 3 satellites being deployed from the same P-POD and
will be released within moments of each other. The systems are timed to not
overlap individual station transmissions, so in a single pass, all three
should be heard.

For any technical questions, please contact the POC, Oriol Tintore of
Phonesat. His contact info is below.
