Thank you for your wishes…
Well it is a Nanosat. Shouldn't have called it a cubesat… my bad…
As far as I am know, there is no possibility of a secondary communications mission. I have graduated from the University so the information I have is kind of limited. They have asked me and other Ham radio operators to track the satellite. Hence, I have posted it here. Will let you you if I hear anything about a secondary communications mission.
Also, Pete, WB2OQQ, reported that he was not able to load the TLEs into his tracking program. I believe the email system has reformatted the keps. So now the keps can be downloaded from here: http://dinesh.cyanam.net/dl/SRMSAT_TLEs.txt
