William A. (Bill) Tynan, W3XO, OSCAR Number Administrator has conferred on Shin’en2 the designation Fuji OSCAR-82 or FO-82.
In reply to Seiji Fukushima’s, JH6RTO, request for an OSCAR number, Bill said, “I along with all in AMSAT-NA and the world’s Amateur Radio satellite community congratulate you and all involved with Fuji OSCAR-82 and trust that it will fulfill all of its mission objectives. FO-82 joins an illustrious line of Fuji spacecraft built and launched by Japan.”
Attached screenshot reception of Shin-en2 2014-12-08 21:30UTC. I believe 2.300.000km from Earth.
The first trace of the signal starts little above 437.379MHz at the 21.29.54 mark. Then the trace 441Hz higher. 4 Traces can be seen 441Hz spaced.
This correlated to the Shin-en2 signal.
Signals are extremely weak now. I could pick this up by making use of the 6db groundgain advantage when the satellite rises (or sets) and goes through my antenna groundgain lobs.

We are nearly sure, that we are listening Shin-en2 from deep space distance 1.893.762km with crew: SP5ULN [Piotr], SP5MG [Piotr], SQ5RWU [Lukasz], SQ5KTM [Michal], SQ7GMO [Arek] and PIAP Team.
Shin’en2 carries a 0.1 W CW beacon on 437.505 MHz and telemetry on
437.385 MHz (0.8 W) using a mode similar to WSJT. It will also carry a F1D digital store-and-forward transponder with an uplink of 145.942 MHz and a downlink at 435.270 MHz (0.4 W), but not the Amateur Radio Mode J linear transponder announced earlier. The data format is posted on the Kagoshima University website.
A linear SSB/CW transponder had been part of the initial design, but, according to Hideo Kambayashi, JH3XCU, that had to be abandoned because of regulatory issues. The digital transponder will offer earthbound hams an opportunity to test the limits of their communication capabilities, however. The project also is hoping to gather listener reports.
We are Polish Ham Group from Warsaw. We use 4,5m mesh dish shared from PIAP Company, ICOM-910H, SP-7000, Spectran, rotator, etc.
Now we are recieving Artsat at 719.826km far. I send You some photos from our listening.
Our group are: Piotr SP5ULN, Łukasz SQ5RWU, Piotr SP5MG, Michal SQ5KTM and PIAP Company team.
21:00UTC – 00:00UTC
Signals 5 ~6 db above noise. Signal very weak now. Slow QSB

First screenshot spacecraft 700.000km from earth
Second screenshot spacecraft 750.000km from earth
You see the qsb on the spacecraft. Around every 2 minutes a short signal.
Doppler 20Hz in 15 minutes – Distance 750.000km
The digital beacon is on 437.385MHz. This is not WSJT / JT65b. Its some own coding.

Here is a nicer screenshot. @325.000km distance. Signals are around 10db above noise.
