Re: Need some help with AO-27, AO-51 and SO-50 dimensions



I was indeed wrong. They are all roughly 25cm/10 inches per side, with some minor variations. I will attempt to have this correct on the website, and include the units!

Sorry for my erroneous first response.

73, Drew

  Hey Drew,

  Thank you so much for this. I would really like to know the accurate dimensions of the satellites and, again, suggest that whatever they are be posted on each satellite's page on the AMSAT site.

  73,

  Tim
