Has anyone tried copying the Ka-band transmissions (24 GHz, IIRC)?
That can only be active over UW footprint, so the number of stations that could listen in is limited by that fact. Too, unless they publish some information on their planned operation times, there would be no way to know what passes they may activate it.
So nobody has heard it emit 24 GHz. Got it. That's all I was asking.
I wasn't asking either UW or AMSAT for privileged information, nor do I expect any. My interest was purely technical curiosity, as one would expect from a member of our hobby.
Much like any other (non-intelligence-organization) object in orbit, we are not prohibited from listening to any RF emitted by the satellite, even if we don't understand the content.
