Recorded the Artsat1 Invader CO-77 satellite / 2014-05-22

2014-05-22 Recorded the Artsat1 Invader CO-77 satellite
I saw an announcement that Artsat1 Invader CO-77 aka ITF 1 was going to make a pass over Europe. I recorded it by having the laptop with the gpredict software also run audacity to record the audio from my handheld transceiver, so the audio isn't brilliant, but it's something. I reported the pass and the recorded audio to the Artsat team. This satellite is even in a lower orbit: the entire pass horizon to horizon was in 7 minutes. In the end I have 1 minute 40 seconds of usable audio, with everything the satellite offers: morse, the digitalker and AX.25 frames.

The voice says: "Konnichiha Uchu" which translates to Hello, space!.

Update: with fldigi I decoded the morse code:
*HELLO, SPACE*

Update: the pass was also recorded by PE0SAT and DK3WN: INVADER Digi-Talker active - DK3WN SatBlog including decodes of the AX.25 frames.

And the transponder file I used: /home/koos/.config/Gpredict/trsp/39577.trsp with:
[FM Downlink]
DOWN_LOW=437200000
MODE=FM
Now I have adding frequencies for an existing satellite covered, I wonder about adding an entire satellite.
