    Hi,
    
    3 Cubesats have been launched from Antares into 250km orbits this 
    Sunday. They are dubbed PhoneSats, because they are using smartphones as 
    processors:

    The PhoneSats are sending packets at 437.425 MHz in the amateur band, 
    also including pieces of a picture taken with the phone cameras. More 
    details on the website under "packets".
    
    So far, radio amateurs have been successful picking up packets using 
    preliminary/inofficial TLEs created by the PhoneSat team from launch data.

    However, those TLEs are going to get bad soon. So if someone could 
    update the PhoneSat post-launch TLEs  (from their website), this would 
    be  really great!
    
    Cheers,
    Jan
