RadFxSat (Fox-1B) Telemetry Reception Challenge

RadFxSat (Fox-1B) CubeSat

Get FoxTelem set up and ready to go on Saturday! The first amateur radio operator that successfully receives RadFxSat (Fox-1B) telemetry and uploads it to the AMSAT server will receive a commemorative 3D printed QSL card.

RadFxSat is scheduled for launch at 1:47am PST (09:47 UT) on Saturday, November 18 from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. The first transmission from RadFxSat is expected to occur around 12:07 UT. Due to a lack of prelaunch Keplerian elements, it is not known exactly where the satellite will be when it makes it’s first transmission.
