The funding concept of this CubeSat is $1 will sponsor 10 seconds of the mission and what you get for that 10 seconds is the ability to broadcast a message from space, “effectively tweet from space”.

It uses a balloon de-orbit mechanism.

See video at http://www.uk.amsat.org/?p=8435 

Stikes me that a $1 donation for a message might be pushing FCC regs a bit should it be using 437 MHz.
