    More than a million UVQSat telemetry frames received

    AMSAT-F have issued an update on the UVQSat CubeSat, they plan to conduct further test on the FM transponder.

    In a post to the AMSAT Bulletin Board the AMSAT-F President Christophe
    Mercier says:

    More than 1,200,000 frames have been received on the AMSAT-F experimental database this week https://amsat.electrolab.fr/

    It is possible to visualize the data via an online Dashboard: https://amsat.electrolab.fr/grafana/d/ujwd-SaMz/uvsqsat?orgId=1

    These data were collected by more than 50 stations in the world via the
    UVSQsat decoder software. The software allows to send the data to the
    AMSAT-F and Satnogs databases. The continuous reception of telemetry is valuable to the project team that is piloting the satellite.

    Although the downloading of large amounts of data is done over Europe, this also took place over Japan with the help of Japanese radio amateurs.

    It is noted that a new version of the UVSQSAT Decoder software is available with new features (new ASCII telemetry decoded, performance improvement,..)

    The commissioning phase has been successfully completed. Now the UVSQsat project team with Radioclub F6KRK and AMSAT-Francophone will conduct
    further tests on the transponder to ensure that it can be operated over a period of several days without taking any risk to the satellite.

    For this we are looking for volunteer radio amateurs to participate in
    these tests on all continents. If you are interested contact
    AMSAT-Francophone, email amsatf<at>amsat-f.org
