RSGB News reports on a story in the Jakarta Globe.
I understand LAPAN-A2 will use S band (non amateur frequency) for video surveillance and the amateur frequency 437.425 MHz for telemetry.
I gather there is another Indonesian satellite LAPAN-ORARI that will carry a 5 watt output FM voice transponder with a 435.880 MHz uplink and 145.880 MHz downlink as well as an APRS Digipeater on 145.825 MHz and a green light laser for attitude determination.
Does anyone know when LAPAN-ORARI is likely to launch ?
