on 20/01 E-St@r-II will celebrate 1000 days in orbit.
The ground team will try to command it to increase the TM beacon rate to 30s (now it is every 2 mins)
E-St@r-II signal is quite low, so only AZ/EL stations with very good antennas and LNAs are able to see it on the waterfall and very few would be able to decode it. Anyway I will schedule some observations.
If anyone with a good performing ground station is willing to give a try to listen is more than welcome.
