hope this email finds you well. I'd like to inform that we've started
round 3 of Athenoxat-1 beacon puzzles. Beacon puzzles is the regular
data beacon from Athenoxat-1 with specific type 3. It contains 10 frames
per burst every minute (30sec interval alternating with Morse CW).
The kss files containing the frames can be submitted through the usual
address firstname.lastname@example.org (or to my email address here). Thus
with time, we'll be able to construct the complete images with the
collected frames. Our website will be updated daily and can be viewed
For the stations around our control station (in Singapore), please keep
tuning in as the satellite stays beaconing although it may seem appear
busy in comm.operation. The only apparent change is that you may not hear
the Morse CW once our comm.operation starts. Athenoxat-1 is orbiting
at equatorial orbit with 15-deg inclination.Based on what we've seen,
stations as far as plus/minus 35deg latitude (with good clearance horizon
to horizon) are able to receive Athenoxat-1 data.
Please let us know if you need any clarifications or help in setting up
some software for receiving Athenoxat-1 packets.
Please feel free to inform others who may be interested and able to
listen to Athenoxat-1.
Thank you in advance for listening.
