Hi Jonas
Did you find your satellite?
I have 2.4G here.  
1) What is the power output on 2.401 so I can work out what antenna I need to use?
2) Is the antenna on the satellite an Omni or a patch?

Hi Guys,

DTUsat-2 is now operational on orbit and transmitting both CW beacons and
AX25 frames at 1200bps 2FSK. Beacons are alternating at 30sec intervals.

Any help you could offer in tracking and recording beacons would be much
appreciated at this early stage in the mission. Please find attached a
short technical note on how to decode CW beacons. More information is also
available on our project webpage at :

Next pass here at DTU is coming up in 20minutes, whish us luck!

73's all around!
