CW and FSK signal from about 30,000 km far away have been received!

Japanese ground stations worked out together to receive a UNITEC-1 signal.
1st pass over Japan kept from 16:15(JST) to 25:15(JST) at 21st May.

 - Measured Frequency 5839.91 MHz
  (Original UNITEC-1 downlink frequency 5840.000MHz)
 - Problem: big QRH is measured during major and minor downlink
  (wide-range recorder may be needed)
 - Orbital determination downlink is easier to receive
