DUCHIFAT-1 has a short CW beacon every 1 minute on 145.980 (saying "hi de
duchifat"), and a BPSK 1200bd telemetry every 20 sec.
I found out that passes above 50-60 deg elevation can be heard with just a
handy and its original rubber ducky antenna, such as the Kenwood TH-F6.

LU-19 has only a boring carrier, but it is strong and reliable.
