On the AMSAT Bulletin Board Yasutaka JR2XEA writes:
Komaki Amateur SATCOM Club has an amateur radio station in Komaki City, Japan.
The 50 kg class infrared observation microsatellite “Z-Sat” developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries will be launched by the Epsilon rocket on October 1st.
After satellite separation, Z-Sat will start transmitting CW beacon of VHF band.
The beacon signal is in Morse code and contains information such as satellite battery voltage.
This information is very important as survival information immediately after the satellite is put into orbit.
Therefore, if you can receive the beacon signal from the satellite immediately after the satellite launch,
We would appreciate it if you could report it.

We look forward to your attention to Z-Sat.
