deOrbitSail successful launch

deOrbitSail is successfully launched and first telemetry data is received. I used the WebSDR in Johannesburg South Africa to receive the first signals and in the second pass over South Africa I was able to decode the 1200bps BPSK signals.

Then at 21:10 UTC deOrbitSail was also in range of my own ground station and I could decode over 39 frames.
