Observation 744182: MOVE-II (43780)


#1

Regarding Observation 744182
Two Questions:

  1. Was that one vetted automatically? I didn’t do that
  2. Why isn’t it a straight line like always?

#2

I suspect someone jumped in and vetted it. The MOVE-II signal is actually the CW signal right down the centre of the waterfall. The other BPSK1k2 signal (you learn to recognise this stuff after a while :wink: ) is from another satellite.


#3

You can always check who and when vetted an observation by placing the mouse over the vetting tag.


#4

The straight signal in the middle is the satellite in question. The “bent” signal on the left is (I believe) one of the Funcubes?

Indeed! It was 42017 - NAYIF-1. Observation 744315 confirms it too. You can see the curved signal of MOVE-II on it.
