O PSAT-2 foi lançado em 25-06-2019 por um foguete SpaceX-Heavy numa orbita elíptica baixa com 28 graus de inclinação. Transmite APRS a 1k2 em 145,825 MHz, e PSK31 e SSTV em 435,350 MHz.

As imagens seguintes foram recebidas por mim em SSTV modo Robot 36 em GH70un:

Congrats Ronald!

You are the first to succesfully receive SSTV pictures from our camera,
the first one is from the pictures stored in processor before flight, 
the second is taken after the power up of the camera in space, there 
should be 7 more stored, of course, not all would have Earth in field of 
view. Later after evaluation it can be commanded to have pictures on demand.

That last pix (and one below) was from the top of my desk back in the summer of 2017!!

The hams at BRNO University delivered the PSK31/SSTV module for PSAT2
on-time and on-budget (free to us).  They worked over the holidays to meet
a very short deadline and delivered in February 2017 for a March
Integration.

Then 2+ years of launcher and FCC delays and it finally got launched now!
I guess whenever I powered it up, it must have been taking pictures.

Im sure it was frustrating for them to see all the launch delays, but each
was only a few months and so there was no time (and risk was too high)  to
send it back to the Czech Republic for them to do any more tweaks...
(Like I got to do on PSAT2 firmware for 2 years!)
