LituanicaSAT-1 FM Morse beacon

The LituanicaSAT-1 nanosatellite carries a FM Morse beacon which periodically broadcasts it’s operational parameters to all the listeners on the ground. The beacon transmits data every 30 seconds at 437.275MHz with a power of 100mW and it’s signal is basically a FM modulated 600 Hz beep. FM modulation was chosen to support widely available cheap handheld radio receivers. Here is the breakdown of the data which is transmitted to the ground during every cycle:
