Notice of French AMSAT launch



All,

Space News has reported that an Ariane 4 rocket (flight 151) is
scheduled to launch Friday from Kourou with two French AMSAT satellites
aboard. The article says "About 10 days after Friday's launch, the
12-lb. satellites will be switched on to transmit recorded voice
messages and digital telemetry data for about 40 days."

The primary cargo is Spot 5, a French Earth remote-sensing satellite.
