Upcoming Cubesat Launch…

April 22, 2008 | Amateur Radio | By: Mark VandeWettering

On the 28th of April, a PSLV-C9 launch vehicle will carry a bunch of tiny cubesats into earth orbit. Mineo Wakita posted a list of their frequencies to the amsat-bb, which I am reposting here. Ultimately, the Delfi-C3 sat will probably be the most interesting to amateurs (it includes a linear transponder) but getting telemetry and the like from the others could be fun too. Archived here for my later consumption:
