CubeBug-1 Heard on the 12:20UTC pass again.

Hi All,

CubeBug-1 has been heard here again on the 12:20 UTC pass. Its modulation
is AFSK 1200bd but seems to be lacking deviation.A recording can be found

The beacon should be on every 30s or 10s. The observed period was 30s.

Possibly, a low deviation FM RX can retrieve the signal.
