>From the Arianespace website: 


"Flight 151 also carried two auxiliary payloads, called Idéfix, from France's AMSAT amateur satellite association. Mounted in a box-like structure, these two 6 kg. payloads will remain attached to an ASAP platform on Ariane 4's third stage. They will be switched on approximately 10 days after launch to transmit recorded voice messages and digital telemetry data for about 40 days."
