ARLS004 UO-11 Satellite to Mark 20 years in Space

UO-11--also known as UOSAT-2--turns 20 years old on March 1.

To mark the event, AMSAT-UK will issue a commemorative QSL card in exchange for listener reports from stations monitoring the satellite's signal during the entire month of March. The reports must be posted via the reporting page on the AMSAT-UK Web site, http://www.uk.amsat.org/uo-11/default.php, and QSL cards will be in the form of a downloadable E-QSL.

UO-11 was the second satellite to be launched by the University of Surrey group headed by Martin Sweeting, G3YJO. Its telemetry beacon can be heard on 145.825 MHz FM using just a handheld radio. UO-11 also has a 2401.5 MHz beacon, although hearing the 2.4 GHz signal could present a challenge. The University of Surrey Ground station staff reportedly will attempt to maximize the number of days the transmitters are active during March.

More information is available on the AMSAT-UK Web site, http://www.uk.amsat.org/ .
