Radio Amateurs have been reporting good signals on 437.425 MHz and 437.275 MHz from the new Amateur Radio satellites SRMSAT and JUGNU.
Unfortunately due to the 20 degree inclination of the orbit hams in the United Kingdom are unable to hear them.
Mark Hammond N8MH reports on the FUNcube Yahoo group that he has been using his AMSAT-UK FUNcube dongle Software Defined Radio to receive signals from JUGNU.
Watch the lift off of SRMSAt and JUGNU on the PSLV-C18 launcher
