CanX-1 is an amateur satellite built by students at the University of Toronto, in Toronto, Canada. The satellite was launched this morning and we are expecting to receive a signal from it as it makes its first pass over our ground station. I would like to ask anyone interested to listen for its beacon and report back whether they can hear it.
Just had A short Field Day contact with Ed lu on ISS 12:50 UTC. I am a 1D in Eastern Mass. Ed reported 1A. He also worked one station from his home town somewhere in western N.Y. apparently.
Ed Lu is active on voice.
Although I couldn't make a contact, I did hear Ed respond to several other operators from 12:38 - 12:50 UTC.
W9LDX, W9AE, N9FN, KE2T
These are the calls I heard Ed respond to.
Maybe next pass I will get in.
See you on the Birds.

DTUsat is a picosatellite designed and built by students from the Technical University of Denmark, DTU. The satellite will be launched on June 30th 14:14 GMT onboard a Russian Rockot-launcher, a reused SS-19 ballistic missile.
DTUSAT is on 437.475 MHz (2400 b/s)
DTUSAT sends burst of data every second min. Every 5th burst should be CW - but with a 1200 Hz tone so that it can be heard
on a FM receiver. It will send OZ2DTU DTUSAT at 13 words/min.
