Hi everyone.

Today I was included on an email from Alessio, IU5CRE, who is part of the D-SAT project team. (https://www.dsat.space/radiohams)

Previously, it appears that the majority of the transmissions from D-SAT occurred when the satellite was over Europe.

Alessio indicated in today's email that commands have been uploaded to D-SAT that may result in transmissions tonight over the U.S. around the UHF downlink of 437.505.  He specifically mentioned 437.503 & 437.509.

First, here are the approximate UTC times when D-SAT will be over parts of the U.S. tonight (UTC date: 28-July-2017):

East - 0152 utc
Central - 0326 utc
West - 0500 utc

If D-SAT is not in your tracking software, here is a web-based tracking site:


And as always, there is good info on the DK3WN site at:




So I don't know what, if any, data we might see tonight but since this could be a limited opportunity on this side of the world, I wanted to share what I knew with anyone on this mailing list that shares my interest in cubesat telemetry.
