Can anyone confirm that Cape 1 sends a combination of 9600 packet and CW transmissions?
I don't have 9600 but I can do CW !
Lets hope the launch delay is not too long
During normal modes of operation, CAPE-1 will transmit a CW telemetry beacon once a minute with a 9600 baud transmission, also once a minute but interleaved with the CW. So, CAPE-1 will transmit a CW beacon and then 30 seconds later transmit a series of 9600 baud AX.25 packets. During low power modes the satellite will first drop out high speed packets (CW only with a one minute spacing) and later start spacing out the CW beacon. As per http://ulcape.org/wiki/CAPE1_Telemetry it will take three CW beacons or one high speed transmission to get a complete health "snapshot" of the satellite and we will appreciate anyone copying CW.
