Join AMSAT for a live blog of the RadFxSat (Fox-1B) launch beginning at 09:15 UTC this morning. The launch is scheduled for 09:47 UTC. Note that due to the delay in the Orbital ATK Antares / Cygnus launch, the main NASA TV channel will be covering the berthing of Cygnus to the International Space Station. Coverage of the JPSS-1 launch will be available on the NASA TV Media channel (NTV-3) and is embedded into the following post.

The next launch attempt for RadFxSat (Fox-1B) will occur at 09:47 UTC on Wednesday, November 15th. Join AMSAT for a live blog of the launch and first reception reports, beginning at 09:15 UTC. If the launch goes as planned, RadFxSat will launch on the 43rd birthday of one of its "grandfathers," AMSAT-OSCAR 7. AMSAT-OSCAR 7 also launched on a Delta-family rocket (Delta 2310) from the west pad at Vandenberg Space Launch Complex 2. The schedule hasn't been updated yet, but launch coverage should be available on the main NASA TV channel (NTV-1) at 09:15 UTC.

I will most certainly join for the live launch, thank you very much. The launch site is just over the hill and a few miles. I literally can't miss it. It's kind of neat to listen to the rocket engine and watch the video at the same time.

Scrubbed again - unacceptable upper level winds.

Trying for another 24-hour turnaround.

 Cry  Really hope the rocket goes tomorrow morning.  It looks like the upper-level winds are the only problem, and hopefully they will be a little better tomorrow.  Go JPSS-1 Go Fox!

AO-91 was successfully deployed this morning - but DO NOT key up on its
FM Voice uplink frequency yet!

It is emitting expected telemetry - and teams are working on getting it "tuned up"
for use as out newest FM Voice bird SOON!

Even if you do hear voice traffic, WAIT until you read an AMSAT-NA citation / post
stating it is up and available.

More info - and how to receive and decode and assist the ground during this period at ...
