launched into low inclination orbits - little chance of hearing it up in the
northern countries such as the UK. But it should give Amateurs in many
developing countries a chance to to work the sats using simple equipment and
those countries are the future for Amateur Radio.

and AMSAT-ID have been so successful in working with their national space
institute. Lets hope they have a successful launch.
