Hopefully, THIRTY-TWO satellites - MANY ham birds! - are set to launch and deploy from a Dnepr rocket on November 21 at 07:10:11 UTC.

Follow Nader ST2NH's blog for info - http://st2nh-blogger.blogspot.co.uk/

For hams, there's two-way comm opportunities via linear transponders, FM to DSB repeaters, and digital links. For those just getting into satellites, there will be plenty of opportunities to hone your sat tracking skills!

AMSAT-UK and AMSAT-NL have their FUNcube-1 - a 1U cubesat that includes an educational beacon and 20 kHz wide linear transponder. More info at ...

http://funcube.org.uk/ andhttp://amsat-uk.org/funcube/funcube-cubesat/

Delfi-n3Xt is a 3U cubesat from Delft University of Technology that includes a 40kHz wide linear transponder and high speed S-band downlink. More info at ...

Triton-1 is a 3U cubesat from Innovative Solutions In Space BV with a AIS (ship location service) radio science experiment. That project is expected to last about three months. THEN it will be reconfigured to U/V FM to DSB (like AO-16 mode) for amateur use. More info ...

CubeBug-2 is a 2U cubesat from the Argentinian Ministry of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation, INVAPS.E., Satellogic S.A., and Radio Club Bariloche
It is a technology demonstration mission, with digipeater and data downloads open after initial experiments. For more info ...

An exciting month, indeed!

Probably at ...

Sorry..this is not the Dnepr launch from Yasny on Nov 21st but about a launch
the following day from Plesetsk. We do NOT expect to have any live video from
the Dnepr launch but we   may have a voice link to our Mission monitoring station
at Bletchley Park.

We also hope to have live video streaming from our radio room there on the
BATC webstream service. More details to follow next week!

The one thing I miss about satellites was working the old Soviet LEOs.

With a 10 watt TS-700a 2m all mode and a 2 meter mobile mode slapped onto a metal box fan and working the RS-10, RS-11 birds.  Made MANY qso's through those birds.


Wish some country would do that again.

For me it was RS-12/13... I made VUCC (150 grids), worked 48 states (47 confirmed), numerous DX including Europe when the bird was in K mode... first worked it with nothing more than a Hustler vertical. MAN, what a bird!

AO-40 was the King of them all, while it lasted.
