LilacSat-2 (CAS-3H) was launched along with eight other XW-2/CAS-3 amateur radio satellites on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at 23:01:14 UT on Beijing's new Chang Zheng 6 (CZ-6) rocket from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center.
It has an APRS digipeater and a V/U FM voice transponder which can transmit telemetry data at the same time as voice by using sub-audible tones.
NOTE: the 437 MHz downlink of the FM transponder appears to be about 20 kHz lower than expected, in addition the Doppler shift on the downlink during a pass is about +/- 10 kHz so tune around. If your radio has selectable FM filters use the wider filter designed for 5 kHz deviation FM.
