Title: 50th Anniversary Alouette: Canada's First Satellit
Event Type: Special Events
Description: Sep 29-Oct 28, 0000Z-2359Z, CG3X, Kitchener, ON. Richard Goetze. 14.070. QSL. Richard Goetze, 105 Fairfield Ave, Kitchener, ON N2H 6C2, CANADA. Launched into an 1000 km, 80 degree inclined orbit at 06:05 UTC on September 29, 1962, Alouette 1 studied the ionosphere as a "top-side sounder." This scientific satellite marked Canada's entry into the space age. Alouette's mission lasted for 10 years. Instruments included an ionospheric sounder, a VLF receiver, an energetic particle detector, and a cosmic noise experiment. More than one million ionograms were produced. In 1993, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers recognized the Alouette 1 program as an International Milestone of Electrical Engineering. ve3zup@gmail.com
