Amateur Radio Payload Beacons Heard Following June 19 Launch

The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) is the national association for amateur radio, connecting hams around the U.S. with news, information and resources.


The 145.815 MHz beacon signal from the FUNcube-3 payload has been copied by amateur radio operators.  The package was launched on 19 June 2014 from Russia’s Yasny site.  FUNcube-3 carries "an inverting 400 mW SSB/CW transponder, with an uplink passband of 435.035 MHz-435.065 MHz (LSB) and a downlink passband of 145.935 MHz-145.965 MHz (USB)."  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
