LituanicaSat-1 transponder operation

Dear amateur radio operators,

The LituanicaSAT-1 FM transponder is scheduled to be operative again on May 1st, from 9:30 UTC to 14:00 UTC.

Satellite’s ground control station in Vilnius will be monitoring the transponder’s frequency and attempt to call CQ with the amateur call sign LY5N (LituanicaSAT-1 callsign) when the satellite will be in sight of the ground station. The expected time windows are:

* 2014/05/01 10:46:22 UTC – 2014/05/01 10:56:24 UTC
* 2014/05/01 12:21:48 UTC – 2014/05/01 12:31:47 UTC

All QSO’s with the call LY5N will be granted special QSL cards, signed by the LituanicaSAT-1 core team members and sent out via bureau (no directs).

Every amateur working the FM repeater is encouraged (but not obligated) to RX and answer only the LY5N CQ call during the above time windows.

LituanicaSAT-1 team.
