Michael Chen, BD5RV/4, reports that he recently received an update from Alan,
BA1DU, on the progress of the first Chinese amateur satellite. Things are now
going smoothly. This satellite was formerly named CAS-1 and is now XW-1. It
carries a beacon and three cross band transponders: FM, linear, and digital.
The satellite is planned to be launched into a Sun synchronous orbit in June
2009 by a CZ-2C rocket in Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in North China.
