Radio hams asked for LightSail reports
Jason Davis @jasonrdavis reports that LightSail, call sign KK6HIT, started deploying its solar sail at 1947 UT on June 7, 2015
A fully deployed sail would result in LightSail’s orbit decaying rapidly with the satellite burning up in the atmosphere potentially within a matter of days.
Amateur radio operators around the world are encouraged to listen for LightSail on 437.435 MHz AX.25, 9600 bps FSK and submit data.
