Radio Contest!

Hi Everyone,

Our launch coming up in less than a week and, to keep things fun, I'd like to announce a little contest...

I'll be offering prizes to the first several people who receive telemetry packets from KickSat as well as the first few who receive signals from the Sprites. The prizes will include souvenir Sprites and CRS-3 and ELaNa-V mission patches.

Now for the rules:

  • In the case of KickSat telemetry, you have to send me the raw hex or ascii packet data and I have to be able to successfully decode it.
  • In the case of the Sprite signals, you have to send me a raw baseband recording and I have to be able to decode at least one Sprite signal from it.
  • I'll continue offering prizes until I run out of cool swag.
  • I have the ultimate say on whether or not you win.

To get in on the fun, check out our wiki and join the KickSat mailing list. Let the games begin!
