On the Planetary Society's Blog Jason Davis wrote about reception of
the morse code beacon from the upcoming LightSail-2 mission ...
"Many off-the-shelf CubeSat software packages also have an option to
transmit Morse code beacons, and for the LightSail 2 mission, we're
activating this feature. Every 45 seconds, the spacecraft will transmit
"L-S-2" and radio operators tuned in to the spacecraft's 437.325 MHz
frequency should be able to hear it."
