RAX - NUEVO SATELITE - Radio Aurora Explorer

Amateur Radio Beacon Info

RAX is a space weather science mission carrying an amateur radio transceiver. This enables the amateur radio community to be part of the RAX mission by assisting us with satellite tracking! We encourage all amateur radio ground stations to assist us by downloading our beacon decoding software. This Java-based software is compatible with any 9600 baud, KISS-enabled TNC and all common operating systems (Windows, Mac, and Linux). This program provides a graphical user interface with real-time telemetry decoding. If the ground station has Internet access, the decoding software will also forward the beacon you received to our database and website so others can see what you received LIVE!
Interested in joining our ground station network and having your station on our station map? Please contact us!
