The APRS capable cubesatCAPEII is underutilized and only has limited time
remaining on orbit. The University of Louisiana says users are welcome:
CAPE II operates on 145.825 MHz with a CW beacon with the callsign W5UL, it
also includes a digipeater, text to speech operation, a simplex repeater,
email and tweet functions. The ground station software can be downloaded
Unfortunately, its battery is dead, so it only works on daytime orbits.
But the text-to-speech is on all the time, though the digipeater is not.
I have not operated it, but am at the SMALLSAT conference and the Uof L
people say it is operational and availalbe for use. SO google for info on
how to use it. If you minotor 145.825 you will hear its voice occasionally.
