Chandrayaan-1 reception                                                                                                           updated: (15/05/2009 13:29:03 +0100)

The Chandrayaan-1 mission is a Lunar Orbiter. The spacecraft uses 0dB gain omni's with about 4.8dBW for S-Band downlinks and a 33dB gain HGA with 6dBW for its X-Band downlink. On X-Band the space-craft is an easy copy, whilst S-Band needs a little more patience.

7th February 2009 - Chandrayaan-1's X-Band downlink on 8484MHz has been received, a reasonable signal can be seen; A wav file of the recording is available here

6th January 2009 - Another nice signal from Chandrayaan-1's X-Band downlink on 8484MHz has been received

8th November 2008 - S-Band signals on 2230.800MHz from the satellite are detected;
