TMSAT launch and commissioning.



The TMSAT microsatellite is due for launch on the 23rd June on board a Zenit
launch vehicle from Baikonur Cosmodrome.  It will be placed into a 821km
sun-synchronous orbit with a local ascending node time of approximately
21:37.
A breif overview of the TMSAT commissioning plan is available at
http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/EE/CSER/UOSAT/amateur/tmsat/tmsat_commissioning_p
lan.html.  Further information will be posted to UO-22 as the launch draws
nearer, and updates on the commissioning itself will be uploaded to TMSAT
and UO-22 following the launch.

All initial commissioning will be carried out using the 9600bd downlink, so
stations equiped to receive the present 9600bd amateur spacecraft will be
able to receive TMSAT on 436.925MHz.
