Unfortunately until Monday I can not add them in DB, however if anyone wants to observe them, please suggest them in DB (as logged in user in satellites page at the top right, for norad id leave it blank and for norad to follow use 25544) and I’ll review them as soon as possible.

I took a look with STRF, and it looks like almost all satellites are there. Only at 437.062 MHz of SWSU-55 No. 2 (SWGU No. 6) it looks like no signal. The wide band signals could be the SSTV. The satellites have just been deployed and are all very close to the ISS.

I decoded these and other photos. Ax25 failed.

Are these frequency coordinated with the IARU?
That seems like a rather large chunk of spectrum to take up.

With many sites around the world reporting strong signals from these satellites, very few of the AX.25 packets were decoded. Many stations worked on trying to understand why and with input from multiple skilled operators around the world, we can now get reliable decodes using a non-standard AFSK baud rate (1145) and mark-space tones (1109/2230). Some or all of these parameters may have room for improvement, so if anyone has better luck with some other combination, I’m sure everyone would love to know! -Scott, K4KDR

The SWSU sats continued to look good on the 0513utc pass over the Eastern U.S. The AFSK telem beacons from multiple satellites all decoded just fine w/ the 1145 baud settings.

By chance can anyone translate whatever language the long section of recorded audio is included with the digital voice ID’s here →

… and here is tonight’s tweet w/ images of the waterfall & SSTV pictures decoded on replay →

Hi Mark,
In a word NO…the IARU Coordination Panel did not receive any frequency coordination request. 73 Graham G3VZV

If I remember correctly, in the past, the IARU never received any request for a Russian amateur radio satellite. Why would they do it now?

I see a tweet from EU1SAT ref. uploading telemetry from one of the SWSU sats to the SatNogs-DB.

Are there temporary ID #'s for these objects now?

Thanks very much for the SatNogs-DB temp ID info.

If I matched everything up correctly, then here is an updated list of those objects:

… so maybe these should be marked as such in the DB? Thoughts?
