SO-50 SAUDISAT-1C
Catalog number: 27607
Launch date: December 20, 2002 1700z
Launch site: Baikonur, Kazakhstan

Status: Operational

Current Mode: V/u

Uplink:   145.850 MHz FM - 67.0 Hz PL tone
Downlink: 436.795 MHz

Mode and Antenna Polarization:
V: Linear
U: Linear

(not up and running currently)

To switch the transmitter on, you need to send a CTCSS tone of 74.4
Hz. The order of operation is thus: (allow for Doppler as necessary):
1) Transmit on 145.850 MHz with a tone of 74.4 Hz to arm the 10 minute
   timer on board the spacecraft.
2) Now transmit on 145.850 MHz (FM Voice) using 67.0 Hz to PT the re-
   peater on and off within the 10 Minute window.
3) Sending the 74.4 tone again within the 10 minute window will reset
   the 10 minute timer.
