Thank you for your wishes.

The FSK downlink contains only the health monitoring data of the satellite
and is used for payload calculations. IPGP university in france requested
us for the payload data for their scientific research thus we are switching
on the telemetry only over India and France.

However the CW beacon will be on through out the orbit and can be received
from anywhere.

Kind regards,
Team Pratham
