Soyuz-2.1a / Fregat Baikonur launch 2021-03-22T06:07 UTC

‘AG’ would make good sense; it’s about the right distance behind ‘M’ to line up with my observations. I will start tracking ‘AG’ when monitoring for STECCO. Thank you!

There are new TLE sets from spacetrack, a quick update was for BCCSAT-1 that is now changed to follow OBJECT AK(48082) as @PE0SAT suggested after fitting some strf observations. More updates to come later today.

More new TLE sets from spacetrack, all of them assigned to objects. These are the current fits for the 35 TLE sets by using ikhnos (given that the satellites alone were 39, we still expecting more TLE sets):

Most of the results are also confirmed by strf observations of @PE0SAT.

Another confirmation that the carrier like signal we see for STECCO is STECCO is that the OBJECT AG orbit is close to the satellites that were deployed from UNISAT-7. So, personally I’m 90% sure that this is STECCO. Also from https://network.satnogs.org/observations/3884671/ is clearly visible that is not related with the BCCSAT-1 which transmits outside its ITU coordination.

First I want to thank you for all the observations of the DIY-1 that are made daily by satgnos.
I thought that in USB mode it would be easier to decode the telemetry that is recorded daily but clearly it is undecodable. The correct mode is CW. Please, the the next observations pass to CW, so that we can decode them correctly the audio.

Again thank you very much!

More new TLE sets from spacetrack, all of them assigned to objects. These are the current fits for the 38 TLE sets by using ikhnos. In the previous posts I wrote about 39 deployed satellites, this was wrong, the satellites were 38, I counted WormSail which wasn’t on this launch.

I’m not sure if we should start identify objects, as we don’t have any TLE from the Soyuz Rocket. I’ll try to check it more, but if anyone has any idea, let me know.

Dear all,

I have some update about GRBAlpha. Last night we get data from onboard Celeste GNSS receiver. Our colleagues from Konkoly observatory in Budapest created a quick plot from the data. It seems we are object AD. We’ll do some more research and let you know.

Regards.

Jakub

Thanks for the update! I’ve just changed the object we follow for GRBAlpha in DB and Network to the AD one.

We have more GPS data from GRBAlpha and plan to retrieve even more during this night passes. Just for our interest: does anyone know some service how can these data be fitted in order to have a TLE? :slight_smile:

Not a service, but I have some python code that can probably do this.

Update on the fits for the 38 TLE sets by using ikhnos. If we don’t have any new TLE sets in the next days, I think it will be save to start identifying satellites.

FEES is changed to follow OBJECT N(47944) based on this observation, thanks to @PE0SAT for pointing me to it.

@YT2CQ can you confirm that this signal could be FEES? or at least if FEES was set to transmit FSK at that time (2021-04-18 10:08 UTC)?

By the way if this is FEES, it seems that it is ~7KHz off from its center frequency and transmits a very faint signal.

Its not FEES.
FEES have one FSK transmit every two minutes.
More precisely a burst of 10 FSK signals very close to each other every 2 minutes.

FEES is tracked as object 022AL or 022AK

How did you end up on these two objects?

OBJECT AK is BCCSAT-1, so if FEES is between the two, then it should be OBJECT AL. I’m going to change to follow this object for FEES in DB and Network and see if we can get any FSK signal.

With the above and the signal in https://network.satnogs.org/observations/3969288/, it seems that there is also something else transmitting near that frequency (local with drift or another satellite), let’s keep watching to find out. :slight_smile:

I have success to catch a few LoRa packages from FEES and only with yagi antenna (4el, gain ~7dBd). One package per pass and usually at night (after 23h UTC).

And I use TLE for object 022AK.

FEES ground station in Italy use TLE for object 022AL or 022AK.
I had no success to receive signal on SDR for now.

Regarding Observation 3979046

Perhaps FEES at 100s…

Unfortunately this is AALTO-1 and not FEES.
