Teachers in Space (TIS) are ready to deploy our educational CubeSat “Serenity” on the first flight of a new rocket company, Firefly Aerospace.
Follow Firefly’s progress towards first launch here.
Elizabeth Kennick, president of Teachers in Space, tells readers, “You should be getting ready now to talk to our satellite.”
During beaconing, you can simply receive messages.
If you have a ham license, you can request and receive data.
You can access the data on our website, here.
Kennick says, “Ham operators are super excited to work with a satellite. Ham operators love to track satellites. But now they get to send commands and receive data.”
Teachers in Space received an amateur radio license from the FCC for the satellite in 2020.
