Re: SETTI Express launch date



Hello all,
This was read last night on the Houston Amsat net.
This is an opportunity for a plug for the weekly Houston AMSAT net that is
available for your listening in a few ways...

The net occurs every Tuesday night at 8pm central. In the Houston area you
can listen in on the 145.31 (pl167.9) n5jnn repeater.
You can also listen to the Live Net with either Real Audio or MP3 Player.

http://www.dishnuts.net/rfd1.m3u 16K feed
Tune in with your favorite irc chat program to irc.dishnuts.net and join
channel #amsat for live chat during the net and other off peak times with
some irc regulars.
Else where in the galaxy, the Amsat net is available on c-band satellite via
the w0kie satellite network.  AMC-7, Transponder 5, 7.5MHz wideband audio.
Any other info, links, and archives of past nets are on the web site
http://www.amsatnet.com/.

See you on the net!

> SSETI Express Launch Date Announced
> The launch date for SSETI Express and three 'cubesats' has now been
confirmed as 25 August, with the next day, the 26th, as a back-up. The
satellite has now completed all its pre-launch tests and is presently back
in the clean room where everything is having a final checkout and where the
cubesats are being loaded into their launchers. Current plans show that the
satellite will be packed and ready for despatch to the launch site during
the last week of June. SSETI Express will automatically downlink general
telemetry at 9K6 on 70cm and it will also be possible for amateurs to
request specific downloads. It is planned that the 38K4 telemetry
transmitter on 2.4GHz will also be available for amateur voice operation as
a Mode U/S transponder after initial tests on the satellite have been
completed. AMSAT-UK provided the 2.4GHz transmitter for the satellite and a
presentation on SSETI Express will be given at the AMSAT-UK Space Colloquium
to be held from 29 to 31 July at the Univ!
