  1. More notes about the actual beacon txt, “UDVZLET A GOLYAKNAK”: Some days ago there was published a notes on the “official web page” of the Masat-1, with this title:
    A Masat-1 is üdvözli a VIK-es gólyákat.
    It says, one of the member of the designer team, Dudas Levente controlled the sat to broadcast this message to the newcommers students to the Technical University Budapest. Officially there was published the results of the entrance exams on this time. This event was the “apropo” to emphesize some other possibilities to follow the Masat-1 broadcast, this is an android client application, available on google play. This app display the actual telemetry informations on the mobile phone.
    Another, new possibility to buy and use the special Masat-1 USB receiver.
    It can buy on this web shop: https://shop.c3s.hu/index.php in two versions
    – the receiver only, its cost around 124 us dollar, with 27 percent hungarian taxes. The shipping to Hungary is free.
    – the second version has an additional, simple “tape-measure” antenna, and in the attached Manual (in this time it is only in hungarian) there are details, how can be bouild and use this device to receive the Masat-1 telemetry.
    Hope, sooner or later can be read in english too. If somebody want to order one, and have problem to fill the hungarian forms, send me a mail to my hg5apz at gmail address.
