The final preparation of AMSAT's Phase 3D satellite continues to
proceed "on target" according to AMSAT-DL Executive Vice President
Peter Guelzow, DB2OS.

RF testing of the various transmitter and receiver systems has
been successfully completed. The RUDAK system has also passed
all functional tests. The IHU-2, one of two internal housekeeping
systems (that also includes the YACE camera) has been installed and is
performing its functions correctly. Fitting of P3D's IR-Laser equipment
is complete and tested in addition to other onboard experiments including
the GPS, CEDEX, MONITOR and CAN-SmartNode system. The
IR-LASER experiment installed on P3D includes an engraved memorial
for Werner Haas, DJ5KQ. He will continue to be with us by his
achievements and in our hearts.

The SBS adapter has been unpacked from its transport container and
has passed a mechanical fit check. AMSAT-NA's Dick Jansson has
recently joined the launch team and will begin making final adjustments
to P3D's thermal systems.

The launch team has established an Internet web site that includes
photographs of the team preparing the satellite. The visit the site, point
