I don't know where that came from but KiwiSAT will certainly not be flying in May or any other
month in 2007. There was some "KiwiSAT"/ "KatySat" name confusion earlier in the year. It
could be associated with that.
Whilst progress on KiwiSAT is extremely good - and a new web page/progress update will
appear within the next few days - we are looking to late 08 at the earliest for our launch.
Believe me - you will get chapter and verse from us as soon as we are ready to start fund-
raising for a launch........!!
Very best 73
