Hi All,

The AMSAT-NL transponder on EO-79 will be activated to support the
International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend (ILLW).

We apologize for the short notice, this opportunity came along very last
minute, and again we took it.

QB50p1 (EO-79) carries the FUNcube-3 400 mW inverting linear 435/145 MHz
transponder provided by AMSAT-NL with support from AMSAT-UK.

   - *Uplink:* 435.035-435.065 MHz LSB
   - *Downlink:* 145.935-145.965 MHz USB

TLEs are NORAD # 40025, COSPAR designator 2014-033-R

Remember that the FUNcube family of transponders do not need much power to
work them.

I will be operating at Scheveningen Lighthouse PA25SCH, NL0025

Thanks to the Von Karman Institute and Innovative Solution In Space for the
opportunity to use the transponder.

Have FUN over the weekend!

Wouter PA3WEG
