Scheduling has been done for the next 24hours after 12:05 UTC deployment:

Satellite Scheduled Observations
MARIO 166
NUTSat 134
LORIS 86
ORCASat 91
SPORT 58
TJREVERB 89
petitSat 2
Total 626

EDIT: To station owners, as we are using the TLE from ISS, if you schedule for this deployment please leave some empty space for ISS observations.

Thanks for scheduling @fredy !

First ISS pass since deployments of the 1st 4 sats; nothing heard from TJREVERB or NUTSat on 145.825 APRS & nothing from DanteSat on 437.600 LoRa. 43° max elevation pass U.S. East Coast @ 1332utc

@mxl_operators MARIO is alive congratulations!

SatNOGS Network - Observation 6949769 this is the first reception and
SatNOGS Network - Observation 6948570, SatNOGS Network - Observation 6948652 and SatNOGS Network - Observation 6949758 is the first one with decoded data.

Great job decoding, thank you!

Beside MARIO, I see decodes reported from DANTEsat (tinygs-webapp) and SatNogs decodes from NutSat.

petitSat on S-Band will be tough, but I’ll be trying for that.

Not seeing anything reported from LORIS or ORCASat. Anything from those that I’ve not found?

So are the only confirmed ACTIVE sats from this deployment so far MARIO, DANTEsat, & NutSat?

Hi Scott,

I am looking into SatNOGS Network - Observation 6948804 in the middle of the waterfall there could be some 2FSK signals. I have created some observations that will produce IQ files to do some further investigation.

All the best, Jan

MARIO frequency starting to shift?

https://network.satnogs.org/observations/6950109/

Indeed, but this is expected as we still use the ISS TLE set when MARIO was deployed. We are on generating a newer set until we have some from space-track.org.

Here is my attempt for better TLE set for MARIO:

MARIO
1 99241U          22364.50000000  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    00

One more TLE set, unfortunately due to the nature of the signal is not easy to extract manually accurate points that will give better results, however it is better than the previous TLE set:

MARIO
1 99241U          22365.50000000  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    01
2 99241  51.6442  78.4381 0004047 148.2355 346.3158 15.50763617    04

One TLE set for SPORT satellite, unfortunately is not very accurate as we don’t have many data.

SPORT
1 99234U          22365.60000000  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    04

From:

There is a TLE set for LORIS:

LORIS               
1 99999U          22363.57291667 +.00000000  00000 0  00000 0 0 00005

It looks like that MARIO has stopped transmitting since 2023-01-01 06:40 UTC.

@mxl_operators is this expected? any info?

Newer TLE for SPORT:

SPORT
1 99234U          23001.20000001  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    09

EDIT: I fixed the temporary NORAD ID to be the one we use for SPORT: 99234
