Christophe Mercier reports three satellites with amateur radio payloads will be on the Vega VV16 launch expected to take place in the early hours of September 2.
On the AMSAT Bulletin Board he writes:
The Vega rocket (VV16) is scheduled to leave Kourou on 02 September 2020 at 3h36 CEST with 53 satellites on board.
One of the satellites that will be leaving is the Amicalsat satellite built by the CSUG (Centre Spatial Universitaire Grenoblois). The measurements made by the satellite will be available to all. They will allow radio amateurs to use them for propagation predictions.
The project’s website (in English) has just been put online http://amicalsat.univ-grenoble-alpes.fr/
The Amsat-Francophone supported this project http://site.amsat-f.org/amicalsat/
A software (Linux & Windows) is provided for decoding the telemetry and sending it to the database (SatNogs). The user manual is available (in English) https://code.electrolab.fr/xtof/josast/-/blob/master/ApplicationAmicalsat/src/site/markdown/UserManual.md
UHF 436.1 MHz AFSK 1200 RS17S
S band 2,415.3 MHz GFSK 1000 kb/s
Reports are welcome. Thank you for your help.
The first 5 people who receive a frame from AmicalSat will receive a gift.
To submit your frame uses the satnogs SIDS or email email@example.com
