PhoneSat is a nanosatellite (cubesat) using a smartphone as the satellite’s onboard computer as off-the-shelf phones already have many of the systems needed for a satellite, including fast processors, versatile operating systems, multiple miniature sensors, high-resolution cameras, GPS receivers and several radios.

PhoneSat satellites transmit its data using packet radio on the amateur radio frequencies (one is 437.425 MHz). If you are an amateur radio operator and you can receive these packets, you have the great opportunity to contribute to the project by submitting them. Dashboard page will give you all the information you need to track the satellites in real time. See
