The KySat-2 CubeSat is scheduled for launch as part of the ORS-3/ELaNa-4 mission on November 20 at 00:30 UT.
To help track KySat-2, we have setup a web page to assist radio amateurs. To help decode packets from KySat-2, we have developed software radio amateurs can download and install. Both are available here: http://ssl.engineering.uky.edu/amateur-radio-operators/
Initially, the software will support receive-only operation, but after spacecraft checkout, it is intended that the software will also support limited commanding.
We have also created an Advanced Satellite Orbit Tracking Tool to visualize KySat-2’s orbit in real-time: http://k2asot.engr.uky.edu/
We appreciate any and all support!
