“First contact” rehearsal

First contact procedureToday the HUMD-OPS team performed the last rehearsal of the first contact with the satellite.

We executed all the planned procedures, from the ground station setup to the telemetry retrieval from the very first moments of the satellite after the PEPOD separation.

Tomorrow we will be at the ground station keeping a close eye over the DNEPR launch and the UNISAT-5 separation. After that, we have to wait for the Humsat-D separation from UNISAT-5.

We have published a preliminary TLE set in the Radio Amateur section, enjoy!
