    So it's not an amateur sat. It is also not an amateur 
"experiment",so why is it using amateur frequencies?
  I have read and reread the regulations governing the use of amateur 
frequencies and all I can find is a vague definition to the effect that 
the operators should be licensed amateur operators!
What is so different that the amateur satellite "service" can use any 
non disclosed frequencies and modulation techniques to any other "secret 
communication" systems that are expressly prohibited by the universal 
amateur regulations?
Just my annoyed response,
