Through the dedicated work of Stefan Wagener, VE4NSA, AMSAT-NA will debut its new 1:1 scale cardboard
model of the Fox-1
CubeSat at Hamvention 2013. We will have a complete display at the AMSAT booth. It is life size, and
based on the latest Fox-1 engineering drawings for highest fidelity in design and appearance. The
printed in color on heavy stock paper, includes all components and the instructions are carefully
prepared to allow
for easy assembly requiring scissors, glue etc. Depending on experience, assembly will take
approximately 10+ hours.
The complete model will be a perfect addition to any satellite operator's shack, and a chance to show
visitors what is being done by AMSAT today. We will have finished models at the AMSAT booth for
display and printed models for sale.
They will be available at the AMSAT booth for a recommended donation of $25. All proceeds will go to
supporting the Fox Project.
