    Yes. I have.....but don't want to post any links to them as most of the sites hosting them are a little 'funny'.
    So , why aren't you posting them yourself? You must be having a bunch of them for public viewing.

    Also, can you post the Studsat Keplerian elements ? I got it as : 1 36801U 10035G 10196.78582254 .00000698 00000-0 10000-3 0 140
    2 36801 098.1468 255.9808 0013548 276.1619 083.8047 14.79744784 540
    It will help me to track it from home.

    Thanks Karthik !
    I got the Keps from NASA and am tracking the Sat since Orbit 64. I'm yet to receive the signals though, maybe not till I set up another 9el Yagi. I almost received the beacon but there was a lot of Packet Troposcatter from somewhere and couldn't resolve. I will post when I get a S9 copy of your Satellite !!

    Hi,
    Thanks a lot for tracking our satellite,
    I would like to know the exact frequency at which you are receiving Beacon.....
    the beacon frequency is 437.861MHz............
    And the packet data is at 437.506MHz....

    Wow, looking at all that space jargon, I know I have to google a lot tonight.

    Hey doc can you please give a brief about your setup to track Studsat. I have no rampup knowledge about it.
    @ karthik , great work man !

    @shashak :
    I use an FT-100D Tranceiver and a self-made twin-boom steerable motorised 2x 9el 70cm Quagi Antennas. I also have a multi-band Discone antenna for receive only.
    Another set-up is an FT-290R/MkII based Transverter for the 70Cm. band ( 430MHz). The receive converter is homebrewed and is fed by the same above antennae through a 17db LNAA435-XX Low Noise Amplifier (LNA). Sorry , but will post some details some other time when I'm free.

    Making a satellite or receiving a Satellite signal isn't too difficult, if you have the inclination & money. Cubesats are DIY of-the-shelf affairs and are available on-line, just like the hordes of LFRs and Quadbots, if you have a good Credit-card. These things aren't 'made' by anyone sane nowadays.

    Most Student Satellites are unnecessarily hush-hush jobs with no details or open shared information. This is very unfortunate indeed !

    @karthikgandiban :
    I have asked some students of mine to track from Europe and Bolivia. Lets wait and see.
