RE: What Satellite is that?



Only the ones that worked (even just for a while).  StenSAT, FalconSAT and I
can't remember the others off the top of my head that never have been heard
from were not given OSCAR numbers.

Jim,

JAWSAT was assigned a OSCAR number in May of 2000.
Along with the others satellites ASUSat, OPAL and JAWSAT.

ASUSat is AO37, OPAL is OO38, JAWSAT is WO39.
