Shamai Opfer 4Z1WS will be giving a talk on Israel’s new 3U CubeSat InKlajn-1 to the AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium in Guildford next weekend.
The triple CubeSat aims to educate a new generation of Radio Amateurs, enabling students to take a part in a real space mission. (e.g. developing an attitude control algorithm and demonstrating it in space).
It is planned to provide telemetry using 1200bps BPSK and 1200bps AFSK with an option of 400bps BPSK and 1200bps MSK . Downlink frequencies of 145.815 and 145.950MHz have been coordinated by the IARU Satellite Frequency Coordination panel.
