One of the many Cubesats launched on the recent SSO-A mission was
the Italian 3U Cubesat EAGLET-1. This satellite transmits telemetry on
435.200 MHz and it is to relay AIS signals emitted by ships from one of
two VHF frequencies to 435.800 MHz. As far as I can see these frequencies
have not been coordinated by the IARU. The operations of this satellite
have nothing to do with amateur radio. It is a commercial satellite,
so an experimental license also does not apply. For details see:
After this satellite a constellation of 20 similar satellites is planned.
Can/should we do something about this?
