SpaceX F9 Transporter-9 - Vandenberg - 2023-11-11 18:47 UTC

Done, is there any way we can credit you and the SatNOGS community for all your help? Who is a good contact for that sort of discussion?

would you like to share this decoder?

For social media, you can mention SatNOGS and/or LSF accounts, we have presence in several platforms. For anything more get in contact through this form and you will be forwarded to the right persons.

By the way suggestion reviewed and accepted, and spoiler alert (a status table with more details for all the satellites is coming) Barry seems to fit one of 58335, 58338, 58339 objects of the list above, for now we are going to follow 58335 until we have a better fit. Reminder that these TLE sets aren’t fully assigned to Objects and maybe change/swap which object they track.


Hi, could we have the deployment update and prelaunch TLE for Albapod-1 deployment plan 09:14UTC today of SpaceANT-D satellite? Thankyou in advance

Danny, SpaceIn

@danny1 you can use the one from this post SpaceX F9 Transporter-9 - Vandenberg - 2023-11-11 18:47 UTC - #188 by fredy or the TLE from space-track or celestrak for the OBJECT 23174AW(58300) at the time of the deployment, as this seems to fit better for the ION SCV-013 deployer. Either case, the TLE will need soon after the deployment an update.

Here are the current fits of the satellites we have received from this launch. Notice that the published TLE sets are still in “TO BE ASSIGNED” status, which means that it is not safe to identify any of them as they may change, or additional objects show up for this launch.

Unless I’m mistaken, it appears from testing w/ tonight’s I/Q recording of the first high-elevation HADES-D pass here that this ‘50 baud FSK’ needs to be demodulated as USB. (normally we think of FSK as an FM demod)

This of course means that there is ZERO error for doppler-tracking; not easy until the TLE is confirmed.

But, on the plus side, the downlink was very strong and if/when you get a packet centered perfectly, it does decode w/ that UZ7HO SoundModem for URESAT-1 linked to above.

I’m still trying to work out how to get decodes in GNU Radio, though. Any tips on that appreciated.


Confirmed. Demodulated as USB.
In addition, with the longer data packet I had to do the “AFC” manually in soundmodem because the TLE are not yet accurate.


We identified Veronika as 58621

58261 0.038 kHz 436.679850 MHz
58264 0.142 kHz 436.679718 MHz


@fredy need help to update SpaceANT-D data. We have deployed on 29th at 9.14 UTC. We tried to track tonight in Malaysia but no luck.


The ~30-second interval downlink packets from DJIBOUTI-1A tracked extremely well using Object #58266


You can login in DB site and at the satellite page to hit the edit button at the top right corner to suggest a change. I’ll create one later today if there isn’t one :wink:

For anyone w/ LoRa RX capability, I saw the following post that indicates that the -9- Pico-IoT sats were deployed:

Screenshot from 2023-11-29 20-04-06

… I don’t have all the parameters needed to decode these signals, but if anyone captures an I/Q or audio recording from any of these objects, I would very much appreciate a copy. Thanks!

Hi all, can you guys help track spaceANT-D (98995) deployed 29.11.23 09:14UTC on amatuer UHF 437.425MHz. The signal is in CW Morse Code OOK form.
By the way what is the meaning of “100%overlap” when about to schedule the observation?

No sign of anything on a high-elevation pass over the Eastern U.S. around 0315utc tonight; will keep trying!


Hi all, I try to change my launch and deploy date in SatNOGS DB, but it say that I need to fill in the citation. What is citation means? Also, what does it mean when I try to schedule it and it cannot be scheduled as it already overlap?

By the way, does anyone have the updated TLE because we only received this TLE only:
First TLE:

1 99999U 23000XX  23333.38472222  .00000000  00000-0 -29891-4 0  9998
2 99999  97.4824  46.0541 0011000 182.7228  83.4074 15.15203911    07

Second TLE:

1 99999U 23000XX  23333.71458333  .00000000  00000-0 -36394-4 0  9998
2 99999  97.4830  46.3783 0010945 181.7779  81.6299 15.15207030    07

Citation field is the way to track from where the information comes from. Usually is a link to a page that contains the information, for example a tweet from a radio amateur, or the page of a launch provider or a satellite team.

About scheduling, this means that other satellites with similar orbit have already been scheduled on a station. If this is your station you can delete these observations and re-schedule. Usually this happens often when new satellites are deployed from the same launch as they share for the first days/weeks similar orbits. For that reason we are trying (manually for now, automatically in the future) to keep a balance when scheduling new deployments.

For this launch, until we identify (connect satellites with their NORAD ID) the received satellites, I make sure that all satellites get their share on the network and the opportunity to be received. So, you can either leave the scheduling on me, or schedule but make sure you will leave several passes for other satellites. In case of excessive scheduling, I’m going to remove some observations, to allow others to be scheduled.

One last note, my manual handling of this balance isn’t perfect, as it is happened manually and massively but I try to be as fair as possible.

The TLE that was assigned to the satellite, SPACEANT-D, is the one that we had for ION SCV-013 deployer and it works fine even if it is old. To give you an overview here is depicted the FOV of 4 TLE sets:

  1. The one we used for ION-SCV013 and passed to SPACEANT-D
  2. The one that has published and fits better ION-SCV013 deployer
  3. and 4. The ones you shared in your post above:


Discard the names as this is an issue of the software, as you see all the TLE cover the same area with the difference of some seconds. This means that if satellite is transmitting on the expected frequency, whichever TLE we use station will receive the satellite.


I had described in this post how I perform scheduling.
