Dr Chris Bridges, M0GGK, from the Surrey Space Centre, has advised that the amateur radio beacon on their STRaND-1 CubeSat became intermittent over the Easter weekend. Both DK3WN and ST2NH have reported that no signals have been heard since Sunday. Radio amateurs are asked to listen for STRaND-1 over the next few days and report any positive results, by e-mail, to C.P.Bridges@surrey.ac.uk. Listen for a 9k6 bps AX.25 signal around 437.568MHz, plus or minus the Doppler shift.
