Re: Rf Modules



>From Delfi's website:

How long will the Delfi-C3 be in orbit?

The drawback of the altitude at which the satellite will fly is the decay of
the orbit. Due to atmospheric drag the satellite will lose energy, and thus
altitude, quite rapidly. For the Delfi-C3 a lifetime of about one year is
expected.
Cheers.
