Another pico launch from Bristol this Saturday 30th. The launch will be at 0900 ISH.
before the payload is transmitting on 434.600 MHz USB, with an output
power of about +6dBm. Each transmission of Contestia 16/1000 will be
preceded by 10 seconds of pips and RSID.
This payload uses solar
panels to generate power. Hopefully the transmission rate will be once
per minute during the day, and once every two minutes at night (if the
payload operates at night). It's also capable of transmitting APRS
packets, but will only do so outside countries where the amateur license
is not permitted airborne (like the UK).
It will probably head
south quite quickly after launch, so trackers on the south coast are
particularly appreciated. More details will appear on the website http://www.bristol-seds.co.uk/flights.html
