AMSAT Confers OSCAR Number On LituanicaSAT-1:

LituanicaSAT-1 https://www.facebook.com/Lituanicasat1 now is OSCAR-78 (or LO-78), AMSAT-NA http://www.amsat.org OSCAR Number Administrator Bill Tynan, W3XO, has announced. LituanicaSAT-1 has met all requirements for an OSCAR number. LituanicaSAT-1 Team Member Simon Kareiva, LY2EN, said it was his honor and pleasure to accept the designation on the team's behalf.

"Our team is focused to keep LO-78 operational for the benefit of Amateur Radio [for] as long as it is possible for a small CubeSat."

The LituanicaSAT-1 team has announced activation of its FM transponder. To find out if the transponder is working, monitor the beacon frequency of 437.275 MHz. If you do not hear the CW FM beacon, the transponder is operating; otherwise, it is off.

The transponder down link is approximately 435.1755 MHz (10 kHz Doppler shift) down, and 145.950 MHz up, with a 67 Hz CTCSS access tone. -- AMSAT News Service
