Dear All,

We are kindly asking for your help.
One of QB50 Cubesats Havelsat was deployed on the 16th of May at 8:25 UTC
from ISS. Following deployment we had 5 hours wait/charge time to start the
beacon. So far we received beacon signal from Japan and from Netherlands 2
days after deployment. Then we have a radio silence so far. There may be a
power issue that does not allow to transmit during eclipse period. We need
further data to process and unluckily our ground station passes are all at
night/eclipse time. Please try to receive any beacon signal from HAVELSAT,
all data will be extremely helpful for us to further understand the status.

Modulation:        CW
Carrier-Frequency: 436.845 MHz
Frequency:         60 s
