This week has seen the deployment of 64 cubesats, with 35 of the satellites operating on amateur radio frequencies, now orbiting our Earth.
Barry Baines, WD4ASW, President of AMSAT-NA and all of the editors of the AMSAT News Service wish to congratulate all of the teams that have had satellites deployed. May your birds fly high, sing loud, and live long!
I have tried to capture a majority of the events as they have occurred from the newest (at the top) to the oldest (earlier in the week at the bottom). For further information please check the team’s website or better yet, get on the air and work the birds!
