FM transponder ham radio satellite launches soon | Amateur Radio News – Southgate Amateur Radio Club

The launch of the UVSQ-SAT satellite carrying an FM transponder is provisionally scheduled for January 21, 2021

On the AMSAT Bulletin Board Christophe writes:

The satellite designed by LATMOS had its frequencies coordinated by IARU.  In addition to experimental and educational missions, it will provide the amateur radio community with a new FM transponder.  AMSAT-Francophone and the radio club F6KRK have been involved throughout the project.

AMSAT-Francophone provides the amateur radio community with software to interpret the data and send it to the AMSAT-F Satnogs database.

You can start testing the software (in beta mode) and make your feedback for its improvement. The software runs on both Windows and Linux platforms.

Two audio files are available for testing the software:

· 1200 bps (BPSK / G3RUH)  :  SDRSharp_20201023_143925Z_437017790Hz_IQ — Beacon_1200.wav

· 9600 bps (BPSK / G3RUH) : SDRSharp_20201023_144839Z_437011810Hz_IQ—Beacon_9600.wav

The satellite will transmit on the frequency: 437.020 MHz.
