      Have you copied this bird Steve?  I had a pass coming up about 15 minutes after receiving your message, so I hooked up my D72 just to listen to the audio.  Well, their web page says they're at 437,438,400Hz (437.445MHz is scratched out on their Telemetry page), but my VFO will only go to 437.425MHz and 437.450MHz.  Looks like I need to get out the book to see if I can tune an arbitrary frequency.

      I listed to 437.450MHz for the entire pass, but nothing ever broke squelch.  I'd probably assume that to be normal since I was trying to tune an FM carrier off frequency.

      The Argentine CubeBug-1 is a 2U CubeSat (10x10x20cm) and has an AX.25 packet radio digipeater.

      It operates  on 437.445 MHz using 1200 bps AX.25 AFSK FM packet radio, callsign LU1VZ-11. Depending on the mode of the satellite the beacons will be transmitted every 10 to 30 seconds.
