Delfi-C3 launch date announced




According to the following link,
http://www.delfic3.nl/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=65&Itemid=71
Delfi-C3 has a launch date set for 30th June 2007, when it and several
other Cubesats will fly onboard the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle from
India. With an altitude of 630 km, its UV linear transponder, when switched
on after 3 months of research, will have a footprint similar to that of VO-52.

Hams should heartily encourage and avidly support this large cubesat, which
plans to give so much back to the amateur community.
