Default ARISSat-1 deployed and ready for use


In case you missed it, ARISSat-1 was launched during a spacewalk from the International Space Station yesterday. With this bird, you will be able to receive it's telemetry, CW beacon and a SSTV transmission. It was supposed to also have a 2m/440 linear transponder, but the 440Mhz antenna came up missing. More information on how to work this bird can be found at: AMSAT - ARISSat How To

The missing antenna was disappointing, but considering it's only going to be up there for about 6 months and I think the primary mission was to monitor vacuum levels on its way back down. I did see one report that the transponder was working on the Amsat-BB but it was only one report, so unless there are more or KB1PVH or W1MSG post here about the transponder working, it probably doesn't.

It sure sounded like the linear transponder is working, I heard some voice on USB around 145.930 at 11:28Z but it wasn't very strong
