Flight Information

Sacaton Peak repeater

Talk-in frequency used prior to launch and tracking team coordination during flight (when the ANSR cross-band repeater is not available) is the Sacaton Peak repeater, 447.725/442.725 MHz 100.0 Hz CTCSS tone.

Traffic on the cross-band input can inhibit the beacon activity from the payload computer, therefore it is recommended an alternate simplex frequency, 145.560 which is the repeater input with no offset, be used in the critical minutes prior to and during payload landing and recovery.
