ARLS004 HuskySat-1 (HO-107) Transponder is Open

The transponder on HuskySat-1, now designated as HuskySat-OSCAR 107
(HO-107), has been activated and is open for use and testing, AMSAT
Vice President - Operations Drew Glasbrenner, KO4MA, reports.

"It's fairly sensitive, and 5 - 10 W is plenty most of the time.
There are some fades due to satellite orientation, and some passes
are definitely better than others. Strong signals may impact the
beacon strength."

HuskySat-1 is the first CubeSat from the Husky Satellite Lab at the
University of Washington and the first mission with AMSAT's linear
transponder module (LTM-1), a V/u transponder and integrated
telemetry beacon and command receiver. University researchers
recently completed their Part 5 (Experimental) operations and have
opened up the amateur radio transponder, which is available for use
in educational CubeSat missions that are willing to enable the
transponder for worldwide use.

The HuskySat-1 V/u transponder is inverting, with an uplink passband
of 145.910 - 145.940 MHz, and a downlink passband of 435.810 -
435.840 MHz. The 1200-baud BPSK telemetry beacon is at 435.800 MHz.
