Of the satellites listed (according to the list posted at
http://www.amsat.org.uk/iaru/finished.asp), the following satellites
have been coordinated with IARU for use of the amateur satellite spectrum:

    * Swisscube: Space Center, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Laus
    * Goliat: University of Bucharest
    * UWE-2 (but not yet UWE-3): University of Wuerzburg

Unisat3 from Rome was launched with AO-51, however the UniCubesat is not
listed with the IARU.

It appears that the IARU Coordination group knows nothing about the
other satellites listed in the press release. But then, it also appears
that the recent Russian RS-30 "Jubilee" was apparently

If any of you are in contact with any of these groups, please stress to
them the need for coordination with the rest of the amateur
radio/amateur satellite community. Information of the coordination
process, along with some recommendations (including a very useful link
budget spreadsheet from Jan King W3GEY/VK4GEY) can be found at
