PicoDragon is a 1U CubeSat that was deployed from the International Space Station on November 19.
It was developed by the Việt Nam National Satellite Center (VNSC), University of Tokyo and IHI aerospace.
The satellite, callsign XV9PID, carries a 100mW CW beacon on 437.250 MHz (+/- 10 kHz Doppler shift). It is understood there is also a 1200 bps AFSK 800mW AX.25 telemetry beacon that can operate on 437.365 MHz and a camera for Earth imaging.

I’m member of PicoDragon Project also known as PDG. We found that the PicoDragon is a very weak signal when in darkness (eclipse), and strong signal when in sunlight. If you have a ground station, please help us to recover the 437.250 MHz CW signal of PDG. We want to recover the CW signal both when it is in eclipse and in daylight.
If you have any comment or information for PDG, please send it to my email pdg<at>vnsc.org.vn or post to the PDG Facebook page.
Thank you so much.
Welcome to PicoDragon Project, and welcome to Việt Nam.
