The ORS4 mission carrying 13 small satellites appears to be a go for 
this evening US time.  See the spaceflightnow.com lead story.

One of the cubesats is PrintSat which has a 3D printed structure and 
will measure the performance of that material over a three year 
mission.  PrintSat is an experimental satellite with a downlink at 
437.325 MHz. It will initially beacon every 1 minute with three packets 
of telemetry data. The modulation is 9600 bps GMSK and the packets are 
AX.25.  The output power is about 1.4W into a whip so it should be 
pretty easy to hear.  We do not have a general use telemetry decoder but 
we would very much appreciate reports of reception of the beacon.  If 
you hear it please send a report to
