Headline Details: A 1U CubeSat project. UVSQ-SAT missions are: 1- Providing a flight platform with functionalities open to ham radio community 2- Education with hardware/software developments and training to satellite operations. 3- Science with earth observation for climate purpose and SDun observation for solar physic purpose. 4 - Technology demonstration with minaturized sensor for earth and sun observations. Proposing a UHF downlink using BPSK at 1k2 to 9k6 data rates with AX25 and PUS formats. Planning a launch from Baikonur in Dec 2020 into a 600km sun synchronous orbit. More info at twitter.com/uvsqsat **Coordination declined as the 80/20 science/amateur ratio of operations does not justify coordination of frequencies in bands allocated to the amateur satellite service. Using amateur frequencies requires that downlink signals are not encrypted (to obscure the meaning of the signal), so that signals will be available for all. The proposed frequency 145.830 MHz would possibly interfere with current amateur operations.** ** A revised proposal has been received and accepted and a downlink on 437.020 MHz ahs been coordinated**
Application Date: 03 Dec 2019   Freq coordination completed on 06 Jun 2020
