Observation 852719: PSAT-2 (99969)

Regarding Observation 852719
Is it possible to update the drifted frequency of PSAT-2 in the SATnogs database?
In the last days (atl least 5), we are not able to decode in the audio any data, due to increased frequency drift, from the spectrograms it looks like it moved additional 8-15kHz, so adding approx. 10kHz to used frequency of 435.354MHz would help to improve the yield of decoded tlm frames/SSTV pictures drastically. Therefore I would suggest new drifted frequency 435.364MHz. Thank you very much.

The sat seems to drift in frequency quite often - my station made an observation (https://network.satnogs.org/observations/858095/) about 15 hours later and it was only about ~1kHz out. You can see another sat working fine on that station here - https://network.satnogs.org/observations/855893/

In any case - IQ files for my station are here -> https://satnogs-iq.s3-ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com

You are right, just the position of the freq drift moved from your, to other locations. I have downloaded all IQ data available from you and decoded some frames from it, thank you. If you do not have any use for the recordings, you can delete all up to observation 850523.
