    AMSAT-EA GENESIS Satellites

    Spains national amateur radio society, the URE, report two AMSAT-EA GENESIS satellites are expected to be launched on September 2, 2021.

    A translation of the URE post reads:

    The GENESIS-L and GENESIS-N satellites, designed and built by AMSAT-EA in collaboration with students from the European University and ICAI, will be launched, in a first attempt, on September 2, once the American company
    Firefly has carried out the static test of the Alpha launcher, this being
    the last step before its launch. The vehicle is ready for takeoff on its platform from Vanderberg Air Force Base in California and carries, for this inaugural flight, many other satellites from various organizations and universities.

    The GENESIS are digital repeating satellites of ASK and CW and also carry Applied Ion Systems AIS-gPPT3-1C experimental ion thrusters.

    The working frequencies of the satellites are as follows:


    145.875 MHz uplink, Modes: CW, ASK 50 bps

    436.875 MHz downlink CW, ASK 50 bps, am2sat callsign


    145.888 MHz uplink, Modes: CW and ASK 50 bps

    436.888 MHz downlink CW ASK 50 bps, am3sat callsign

    The description of the telemetry and the mode of operation of its repeaters
    can be found in the following links:
