Headline Details: A 3U CubeSat Packet data repeater: Space station receives messages from amateur ground stations, stores them and sends these stored messages as a part of its beacon transmission. Thanks to storage of messages, this allows slow communication even between stations which do not see the satellite simultaneously. Measurements: The space station performs measurements and experiments described in detail at https://www.aalto.fi/spacecraft . The measurement data is transmitted in the downlink and collected to be analyzed by the science team. Amateur stations can help in collecting blocks of the data. Proposing a UHF GMSK uplink and downlink at 9k6 or 1k2, it will also be capable of providing a CW beacon. Planning a 600km SSO but launch details have not yet been confirmed. **A downlink on 437.125 MHz has been coordinated**
Application Date: 25 May 2018   Freq coordination completed on 07 Dec 2018
