Re: Fw: Frequency to be used in space for the golf ball



Per:

http://www.marketwire.com/mw/release_html_b1?release_id=109303

 >E21 golf equipment is now traveling 300 miles above Earth, and have (has) 
been onboard the Space Station since September 12, 2005.<

Is this another RS-21 "SwatchSat"? If the message is commercial can it be in 
the amateur bands? If the gear is up there why don't they have a frequency 
range yet?

The article lists a number of "Space Agencies" that are involved....someone 
must know...
