Hi Jan,

The BEESAT-2 TLE is the only one I've seen.

SOMP and BEESAT-3 are in the same Pod as BEESAT-2 but I don't know when the other satellites will be deployed.

I've seen a reference to Dove-2 going into a 290 by 575 km orbit, if correct it might imply it separated after the 4th orbit. Be interested to see which frequencies it uses, at one time I believe it was planning to use 145.825 and 2420.0 MHz.

While the Tsenki announcement said deployments would occur between the 4th and 35th orbits I suspect that may mean deployment are either on the 4th orbit in 290x575 km or else on the 34th orbit into 575 km circular with no deployments in-between.
