A 3U Cubesat with a 5.8 GHz downlink mission.

  • Implement CW and image data downlink using 5.8 GHz band.
  • A deployable membrane antenna will be used for the above communication mission to realize high gain even on a CubeSat.

We will challenge to receive CW as well as high quality image data from the satellite using the 5.8 GHz band link between the satellite and the ground station, which is currently only accomplished by FITSAT-1. We aim to promote the use of this frequency band by disclosing information on how to receive the data for amateur operators. The operational status and receiving methods will be shared with amateur operators on the website and SNS.
