On Friday, March 5, 2021, the first contact was made via the FM transponder on the UVSQ-Sat CubeSat.
Michel Mahé F4DEY of the F6KRK Radio Club carried out the transponder test from the LATMOS ground station. The first contact was with Peter Goodhall 2M0SQL in Elgin.
After the contact Michel tweeted “Very happy to have been able to operate the Latmos station and do #F6KRKR/P validate the transponder #UVSQSat “on #space” after validation of the satellite at the Lab of #Latmos in October 2020!”
Peter tweeted “Fantastic to be QSO #1 on UVSQ-SATs FM transponder wish the @uvsqsat good luck in their commissioning and it being available more often :)”
