Indeed congradulations! However with 92kg at 800km that bird will be up for awhile. I can not help but thinking, "c ould there not have been room for a PE1RAH http://www.leijenaarelectronics.nl/ transponder on it"??

Subject: [amsat-bb] Successful ISRO Launch
Good to see another successful launch by ISRO yesterday. Youthsat and two others went into a 800km orbit.
The Hindu - Three satellites in good health
YouthSat is a 92 kg satellite, developed by students of Russian and Indian universities to study the relationship between solar variability and thermosphere-lonosphere changes. The satellite has a two-year life will carry two Indian and one Russian payloads.
I've not seen any mention of frequencies in relation to Youthsat, anyone know which part of the spectrum it's operating in?
