Graham, many thanks for including this reference from the CUBESAT
project as this is exactly why the website was created.  Larry Kayser
was a good friend and we will miss him badly.
      Interesting your comment about Sputnik 1.  I remember teaching
a physics class Oct 6 1957 when the launch was announced.  The signal
was in the guard band of WWV approximately 20.003 MHz and easily heard.
