[Release date of CAS-10/XW-4]
18 Nov 2022 @BD5RV/4
Long time no see.
We've been discussing when to release CAS-10/XW-4 from the CSS and think
that Dec. 18 will be great. Have fun!

CAMSAT's CAS-10 (XW-4) satellite was launched on November 12, 2022, carried
on the Tianzhou 5 cargo spacecraft to the Chinese Space Station. Deployment
from the Chinese Space Station is expected on or about December 15th. The
satellite will be active immediately upon deployment into its own 400 km
orbit with an inclination of 42.9 degrees.
CAS-10 is an 8U CubeSat approx 228x455x100mm with 12kg Mass. A follow on
mission from CAS-9 and also known as Hope-4 (XW-4) Carrying a V/U Mode
Linear Transponder, a UHF - CW Telemetry Beacon, a UHF - AX.25 4.8k/9.6kbps
GMSK Telemetry downlink and a space camera.
CAS-10 carries a VHF uplink and UHF downlink linear transponder with a
bandwidth of 30kHz. This transponder will work all day during the life
cycle of the satellite, and amateur radio enthusiasts around the globe can
use it for two-way radio relay communications.
CAS-10 carries a camera, and the pictures it takes are stored in the flash
memory on the satellite, we have designed a simple remote control system
based on DTMF, and amateur radio enthusiasts around the globe can send DTMF
commands to download the camera photos.
CW beacon uses Morse code to send satellite telemetry data, which is also a
feature that is widely welcomed by amateur radio enthusiasts.
VHF/UHF linear transponder: Uplink 145.870MHz, Downlink 435.180MHz, Bandwidth 30kHz
Telemetery: 435.725MHz GMSK_4800MHz
CW Beacon: 435.575MHz
