vusat testing

Dear all,
        Flight versions of The Dutch (by Williams, PE1RAH) and Indian transponders were tested "on-the-air" today(27-Aug-03). With this  testing the packages are ready to go on to vusat deck. 
       Both the transponders worked satisfactorily in CW/SSB/FM of mode-B (UV) operation. Hams VU2LX, VU2POP, VU2IR, VU2WMY/URC participated in this important test and gave reports.
       With the delivery of power packages, satellite is getting ready for power-on tests.
       Please note that vusat is a spinning satllite in a synchronous polar orbit of about 917Km (LEO)

-Nagesh, vu2nud
