The SwampSat team at the University of Florida is requesting assistance in collecting telemetry from their 1U pico-satellite, which was successfully launched at 01:15 UT on November 20.  SwampSat will begin transmitting a beacon after 01:15 UT on November 21 (24 hours after launch).  The details are:

Tx frequency = 437.385 MHz
AFSK modulation
9600 baud, 60 second interval
1 W transmission power

The call sign is currently WG4SAT.  Any operators who are able to copy telemetry are encouraged to send it to telemetry@swampsat.org.  Telemetry strings can be pasted into the email body, or attached as a text file.  Please include your call sign in telemetry submissions.  We will be distributing some more automated tools in the near future.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
