Quakesat beacon

The QuakeSat team has published a revised beacon decode guide, along with
FAQ sheet about QuakeSat beacon data on the Stanford Space System
Development Laboratory (SSDL) website at 


Also C and Basic source code along with binaries are available for

 Quakesat transmits at 9k6 baud at 436.675 Mhz. The beacon is quite strong
at 1.2 W, and can even be heard on ht with a satellite antenna. The beacon
transmits every 10 seconds, except when the satellite is collecting data,
or in contact with the groundstation. 

The Quakesat mission is to measure Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) magnetic
signals, which are being test to see if they 
are an earthquake precursor phenomenon. Visit the website for more
