Hi Group


Dose anybody know the frequencies of the Yubileiny satellite lunched last night 


Below is a quote from their website. http://www.npopm.com/ 


The Rockot was carrying three Gonets communications satellites and a small spacecraft to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1957 launch of Sputnik, the world's first artificial satellite.




The “Yubileiny” small spacecraft was developed by the JSC “Academician M.F. Reshetnev” Information Satellite Systems” in cooperation with the Aerospace Vehicle Laboratory (Russia, Kaluga), RPE “Geofizika - Cosmos” (Moscow), the JSC “Saturn” (Krasnodar), Lavochkin NPO (Moscow), the Ramensk Instrument Building company (Ramensk), Khrunichev State Cosmic Research and Production Center (Moscow), and Siberian State Aerospace University (Krasnoyarsk). The motive for development of the “Yubileiny” small spacecraft was the 50th anniversary of the first space satellite. With the help of that satellite the new space 

systems and equipment are expected to get flight qualification, and radio-amateurs all over the world will be able to receive information on the history of space development and domestic cosmonautics achievements.
