Re: Delta 4 Heavy going up pretty empty?



>From the ANS news:

AMSAT News Service Bulletin 340.04 From
AMSAT HQ SILVER SPRING, MD.
December 5, 2004
To All RADIO AMATEURS
BID: $ANS-340.04

Ralphie and Sparkie, a pair of satellites from the University of New
Mexico are presently scheduled to launch as part of the Boeing Delta 4
Heavy Lift Launch demonstration for the USAF from Cape Canaveral.
Launch is currently scheduled for 1931 UTC on 10 December 2004. The two
satellites will be ejected while the Delta 4 coasts in a parking orbit
approximately 100x135 nautical miles high with a 28 deg inclination.
The satellites will conduct a technical investigation to demonstrate
packet radio for inter-satellite links using a frequency of 437.5 MHz.
Due to the low orbit it is anticipated that re-entry will occur within
one to two weeks.
