Amateur satellites slated for launch in September

>From Florida Today's Space Online:

     Sept. 15: Orbital Sciences Minotaur with JAWSAT, FalconSat, ASUSat 1
     and OPAL (Orbiting Picosat Automatic Launcher) carrying STENSAT,
     MASAT (Miniature Amateur Radio Satellite), DARPA Picosat and Artemis
     Picosat spacecraft from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., during a
     launch window of 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT (1230-1630 GMT).

I've written up a WWW page on the satellites  scheduled for launch in 
September and several of which may be in principle capable of J-FM
operation.  (Since it's espcially timely, i am releasing ahead of the
other ones which need still alot of work.)


That page is unconditionally guaranteed to contains typos, errors,
omissions and blatant speculation.  But it may also be things to look
forward to.  These will all go up in the same rocket, and given our
recent experiencem, who knows which ones will be successfully activated
for amateur use.  Something to think about though.
