New Oscar Designations



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC

The following is from the ARRL weekly letter:

* New satellites get OSCAR numbers: AMSAT-NA's Bill Tynan, W3XO, has
announced OSCAR designations for two new amateur satellites. PCsat will
be
known as NAV-OSCAR-44 (NO-44). PCsat is a 1200-baud APRS digipeater
designed
for use by amateurs using hand-held transceivers or mobiles. The
spacecraft
known as Sapphire has been designated NAV-OSCAR-45 (NO-45). Sapphire has
1200-baud AX.25 telemetry and a voice replay on 437.1 MHz. PCsat is a
project of the Small Satellite Program within the US Naval Academy's
Department of Aerospace Engineering, and Sapphire is a joint effort
involving the Naval Academy's Small Satellite Program, Stanford
University
and Washington University at St. Louis. Both were launched October 1,
2001,
from Alaska.
