Re: NASA microsat program (non-amateur)



They may not have amateur equipment on board, but did you see that the  orbit 
has a perigee of 300km and an apogee of 4500km. That would be a great  orbit 
for an OSCAR.
 
The spacecraft is also testing some new radition resistant CMOS logic.  
(CULPRIT)
which it will need going that high!
 
Thanks for the news

As Yogi would say -- it's deja vue  all over again.
