Interesting, as that one isnt on Gunthers Space Page, though maybe its under a different name?

Its actually a bunch of sat which is cool.

Hi,
Is Would it be possible to add initial TLE to SanoSat-1 (SatNOGS DB - SanoSat-1) :
TLE1: 1 00000U 00000A 22013.68860914 .00000000 00000-0 45224-3 0 03

Pinging @fredy for checking!

@orionspacenepal thanks for the TLE. I’ll add them with the rest pre-launch TLE sets shared by Celestrak some hours before the launch.

Using the list of satellites from SpaceX F9 : Transporter-3 Rideshare : CCSFS SLC-40 : 13 January 2022 (1525 UTC) I’ve created a spreadsheet in order to be able to track what we have added and what not in DB:

Feel free to add any missing info.

Are you planning to add LabSat to SatNOGS? I see it’s polish and on amateur frequencies - I think that it was built by a private company (SatRevolution) in cooperation with Wrocław University of Science and Technology. I suspect they should be using same modulation as STORK-4/5 (FSK 9600) but I’m not sure.

We also created a similar challenge as ESA did on the past: Calling All Radioamateurs · pion-labs/PION-BR1 Wiki · GitHub

Thank you,

There is plenty of information missing: what should be expected RF wise?

I’ve just removed from the above lists PYCUBED-1 and TARTANARTIBEUS-1. Both seem not to be in this launch. If someone has different info please share it.

1805 observations have been scheduled for the next 48h, the difference in quantity is due to the frequency of the satellites (some transmit on the same one as you can see in previous posts) and due to the mode of the satellites (as network stations are not able to handle LoRa we tend to schedule less observations for LoRa satellites):

To station owners, feel free to change the satellites that are scheduled to your stations if you have a preference.

Separation confirmed for 6 FOSSASAT-25 satellites travelling in a trail, we transmit at 401.7MHz GFSK and LORA beacons every 30 seconds to 60 seconds. GFSK, +/-5KHz, 9k6, 0xFF. This should be decodable by satnogs and the many satellites are all in a trail on the same frequency. The callsign is ASCII and contains FOSSA-X

Didn’t have high expectations with the max elevation only being 7° on this first pass. So, nothing seen using a number of different LoRa devices including one on the TinyGS network.

Also monitored much of the 436-437 MHz spectrum used by the non-LoRa sats from this deployment and didn’t see any signals. But again, from my location it would be extremely rare to see much below 10, or even 20 degrees.

Better opportunities coming tonight and in the coming days - I’ll hope to have something to contribute.

Unfortunately I didn’t find this information in public earlier. I’ll add the transmitters later today and I’ll try to schedule a couple more observations.

… good to see that at least some commercial satellite operators finally decided to be “good” and move out of the 435-438 MHz amateur satellite band … :clap: :clap:
