Hi Fellow Amateurs,

Cal Poly's next satellite, CP6, is scheduled to launch on May 5th between
20:00 and 23:00 EDT.  We would be more than happy if everyone who is
interested could listen for CP6 as it comes over your locales.  We will be
providing a CPX Data Decoder program which will show you all of your decoded
data as well as forward those packets to us at Cal Poly.  I will be sending
out another email in a few days regarding how to download the program.

Also to note, we will be in the IRC chatroom at 'irc.freenode.org' in the
'cubesat' room before, during, and after the launch.  Thanks!
