RE: Listen for Beacon

Wow, where can I clear the air.

Ok, so how many Ham sats got launched?  Are they all ejected?  I found no
mention of any frequencies on any of those page, and some of the links are

Hope you don't mind, can you give me the quick overview and timetables.
There was a mention of Stensat and something else that would be ejected in a
couple of days after launch, but I can't find any status.

How do you get connected to the status information or does it only exist in
the "inside" circles right now?

I'm going to copy this to the amsat-bb as well, maybe someone else will
chime in.

I'm not trying to be a pain in the butt, I'm just very curious, there was a
request for help, but I'm just a little ole ham in Atlanta, and wanting very
much to understand what "help" means and how to do that.  At this point.  I
need information and I can't seem to find it.  There seems to be a question
about frequencies, etc.  Like is 437.1 opal or something else?

Thanks tons in advance.
