Great news from Poland! We are listening Artsat2/Despatch sonde from deep space distance 1.919.642km with crew: SP5ULN [Piotr], SP5MG [Piotr], SQ5RWU [Lukasz], SQ5KTM [Michal], SQ7GMO [Arek] and PIAP Team.
ARTSAT2:DESPATCH carries a 7 W CW transmitter on 437.325 MHz.
Onboard will be the first sculpture ever to be carried into deep space. The ARTSAT2: DESPATCH mission is seeking “exceptionally skilled ham operators” as part of its “cooperative diversity communication” experiment. This effort will attempt to intercept signals from the spacecraft not only at the ground station in Tokyo, but at Amateur Radio stations around the world, “in order to reconstruct the original data from the spacecraft.”
