Hi Mineo,

no - nothing heard from KAGAYAKI. It was KKS_1 going through the spectrum.
Maybe this was the signal what was heard.

I tracked on 437.376 MHz with TLE Object D. 
KKS-1 came twice because doppler and could clearly identified (CW beacon).

73, Mike

Hi, Mike,
I received a report that it may be KAGAYAKI 437.376MHz CW
with VERY VERY WEAK signal.
Would you try the reception experiment with EME equipment?
