Tanan Rangseeprom HS1JAN has requested radio amateurs to help with receiving telemetry data from the Knacksat CubeSat that was launched on December 3.

My name is Tanan Rangseeprom my callsign HS1JAN. I am project manager of JAISAT-1 satellite. I am very happy that Thailand, represented by King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok (KMUT-NB), has successfully launched a Knacksat satellite from the SSO-A mission on
December 3, 2018.
The Knacksat team are very happy to learn that Mike Rupprecht, DK3WN had been the first person to receive the CW signal, however, after that satellite receive ground stations of KMUT-NB HS0AK and ground station of RAST HS0AJ and AMSAT HS members in Thailand have tried to receive the CW signal from the Knacksat satellite but we have not been able to receive any transmission at all. Hence, I am asking for help from all AMSAT members by asking them to please try to receive the CW signal and confirm this online at the following website:
When you provide a signal report online, the Knacksat team will have a very nice QSL card and gift to send in response to thank you for helping us by receiving our signal. In addition, in the future when the satellite is operational, the Knacksat team will be able to provide a packet radio uplink on VHF so that the satellite can respond count number to you with its callsign. So I would like to ask all AMSAT amateur radio operators to please help us in this and to please send any data back to us online website.
