Hi Dave/Guys,
                        'Fraid not!
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
