The tubesat Tancredo-1 (http://www.ubatubasat.com/en/), built by middle
school students at the Tancredo Neves public school in Ubatuba, state of
Sao Paulo, Brazil, is scheduled to be deployed from the TuPOD, a tubesat
deployer developed by Gauss in Italy (http://www.gaussteam.com/tag/tupod/).
TuPOD was successfully deployed from the ISS this past Monday, Jan 16th,
and should start transmitting a CW beacon on 437.425 MHz for a few days,
starting from tomorrow around 22:00 UTC.
The Tancredo-1 deployment is also scheduled for tomorrow around 22:00 UTC
and right after deployment it should start transmitting telemetry using
packet radio (1200 bps AFSK) on 437.200 MHz with the callsign PY0ETA. The
telemetry format is described in this document: https://goo.gl/qOK6qM
Reports will be much appreciated and can be send online using this web
