DO-64 Telemetry 09-10-2013

Delfi-C3 Telemetry 09-10-2013 08:39 – 08:50 UTC
Max elevation 18 degree, azimuth 028 – 157 degrees.

Because of a lot of carriers around the telemetry downlink frequency it is normally very difficult for me to decode the data from Delfi-C3. This morning it was going pretty well.
I have recorded the whole pass and as you can hear the satellite had some strange transmissions problems at the begin of the pass.

In total over 150 frames received and passed to the data collection server.

Delfi-C3 Telemetry 18-08-2013

Delfi-C3 (DO-64) Telemetry 18-08-2013 19:30 UTC

All those carriers around the receive frequency make it difficult to decode some telemetry data, but this evening we could receive about 150 frames.

Lets see what information is available from those frames. Nice to see that this Satellite that is already 1938 Days in space is still sending so many frames after every reboot.

Lecture Cubesats Veron Breda

Veron LogoHot off the press – Lecture Cubesats Veron Breda (R07)

Wouter Weggelaar (PA3WEG) will give a lecture on cubsats including Delfi-C3, Delfi-n3Xt and FUNcube on March 6, 2012. The lecture will take place during one of the club nights of Veron Breda (R07). For details, see the website from Veron Breda.

A CubeSat is a type of miniaturized satellite for space research that usually has a volume of exactly one liter (10 cm cube), has a mass of no more than 1.33 kilograms, and typically uses commercial off-the-shelf electronics components. Beginning in 1999, California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) and Stanford University developed the CubeSat specifications to help P-Pod Launcheruniversities worldwide to perform space science and exploration. Since CubeSats are all 10×10 cm (regardless of length) they can all be launched and deployed using a common deployment system. CubeSats are typically launched and deployed from a mechanism called a Poly-PicoSatellite Orbital Deployer (P-POD), also developed and built by Cal Poly. P-PODs are mounted to a launch vehicle and carry CubeSats into orbit and deploy them once the proper signal is received from the launch vehicle. P-PODs have deployed over 90% of all CubeSats launched to date (including un-successful launches), and 100% of all CubeSats launched since 2006.
