Re: 9 Cubesats selected for free ESA ride to space



Of the satellites listed (according to the list posted at 
http://www.amsat.org.uk/iaru/finished.asp), the following satellites 
have been coordinated with IARU for use of the amateur satellite spectrum:

    * Swisscube: Space Center, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Laus
    * Goliat: University of Bucharest 
    * UWE-2 (but not yet UWE-3): University of Wuerzburg

Unisat3 from Rome was launched with AO-51, however the UniCubesat is not 
listed with the IARU.

It appears that the IARU Coordination group knows nothing about the 
other satellites listed in the press release. But then, it also appears 
that the recent Russian RS-30 "Jubilee" was apparently 
unknown/uncoordinated.

If any of you are in contact with any of these groups, please stress to 
them the need for coordination with the rest of the amateur 
radio/amateur satellite community. Information of the coordination 
process, along with some recommendations (including a very useful link 
budget spreadsheet from Jan King W3GEY/VK4GEY) can be found at 
http://www.iaru.org/satellite/.

73, Tom
