While it is true that MO-76 does not have a transponder, the satellite WILL send you a signal report if you send it a correctly formatted data packet. To do this requires some technical ability. The satellite uses an RFM-22 transceiver and receives FSK, not AFSK, data signals. The packet must be formatted to the RFM-22 specification, it's not AX.25. All the required information for doing this is outlined in the $50sat communications document available from our dropbox account. The dropbox can be accessed through a link at www.50dollarsat.info. The MO-76 team will even award a Certificate of Technical Achievement to anyone that can confirm the two way QSO with the satellite. Hey, it's the best three guys working from their hamshacks can do in a 2" x 2" x 3" satellite.....at least until next time :)
