The June/July issue of the Journal is now arriving. Members with sharp eyes have noticed that while the address is correct, the name, callsign, and membership status are incorrect. This was caused by a problem with the printer software. They have been very apologetic, and have assured us the problem has been solved. There is no need to contact the AMSAT office since they are aware of the issue, and the membership data is correct in their records.
The AMSAT Fox engineering team has completed the design of the printed circuit boards for the satellite’s “Z” axis solar panels. Each of these printed circuit boards (PCBs) will accommodate two Boeing/Spectrolab UTJ solar cells.There is a hole in the panel for the lens of the Camera module that is being developed by Virginia Tech. A sample PCB was fabricated and sent to our partner SpaceQuest who approved it for manufacturing into our solar panels.
