Content of Space news bulletin 29 Mar 99


In a former press release #99-03, AMSAT-France informed the amateur
community that it had delivered a radio and electronic modules
(including a microcontroler 8031 CPU) to Spaceflight Control Center in
Moscow for a new AMSAT-Russia satellite.
However SCSC told AMSAT France that this satellite was not an RS project
and that they did not want to give him the name RS-19. SCSC had the
responsability of recording the voice messages and of integrating the
french modules into the satellite.

AMSAT France was involved into this project for technical assistance and
has no more information about its development.
