    Radio trackers can download LightSail 2’s beacon structure for help with decoding packets. Here are some additional useful parameters:

    WM9XPA | 437.025 MHz | AX.25 | FSK | 9600 bps

    Every 45 seconds, the spacecraft transmits its call sign, WM9XPA, in morse code:

    .– – ––. -..- .–. .-

    You can download audio files of the morse code beacon below, and even use them as a ringtone for your phone!
