Happy World Radio Day!

Today is a worldwide celebration of the technology, used as a broadcasting medium since 1906, that brings people together across the globe. We use UHF (~430 MHz) and VHF (~146 MHz) radio frequency bands to communicate with the ground from the satellite.

The Communications Team  uses the lower frequency radio band to send the health information of the satellite, also known as telemetry. The higher frequency radio is used to send the scientific data quickly and accurately. We will use the antenna made by the Groundstation team.
