Oliver Amend, DG6BCE, Project Manager of the SAFIR-M satellite
project announced receiving an OSCAR number.  I'm forwarding
this ahead of the next ANS bulletin publication because it will 
be Saturday before this information gets out if we wait that long.

please note that SAFIR-M (call: DP0AIS) has got its OSCAR number:
AATiS OSCAR-49 (AO-49) was issued to SAFIR-M on 4th of January
2003 (see below mail). Thanks to AMSAT-NA for this assignment.

As SAFIR-M is an amateur radio payload onbord of RUBIN-2,
the TLEs of "RUBIN 2" (NORAD #27605, COSPAR #2002 058A) are
to be used.

Dear Oliver Amend, DG6BCE

AMSAT-NA President Robin Haighton, VE3FRH has asked me to handle
issuance of OSCAR numbers.  Therefore, in response to the letter 
written to him by Peter Guelzow, DB2OS, President of AMSAT-DL, requesting 
an OSCAR number for Rubin-2, I hereby issue AATiS OSCAR-49 (AO-49) to 
your new amateur radio spacecraft.  Thus, AO-49 joins a long line of 
amateur radio satellites beginning with OSCAR-1 launched in December, 1961.

On behalf of AMSAT-NA I wish to congratulate you and your associates on the
successful culmination of this project and hope that amateurs all over the
world will have an opportunity to use AO-49.

Best wishes and 73,

William (Bill) Tynan, W3XO
Board Chairman AMSAT-NA
