BID: $ANS-311.01

OSCAR Number Administrator, Bill Tynan, W3XO reports that he has ad-
vised J. M. Wersinger, PhD, KI4YAU, Professor Emeritus and Director 
of Auburn University's Student Space Program, that following the 
successful NASA ELaNa III launch on October 28, 2011 of AubieSat-1,
and by the request of the AubieSat-1 team, the new satellite has 
been assigned an OSCAR number. 

Professor Wersinger documented that telemetry has been received from 
the satellite. The IARU-Sat Website states that AubieSat-1 was fully 
coordinated with the IARU.

Bill wrote, "Therefore, by the authority vested in me by the AMSAT-NA 
President, I hereby designate AubieSat-1 as AubieSat Oscar 71 or AO-71 
and welcome this newest OSCAR into the Amateur Radio satellite commun-
ity. On behalf of AMSAT-NA and the world's amateur radio satellite 
community, I congratulate Professor Wersinger, Auburn University and 
all of those responsible for building, testing and launching this new 
CubeSat. May its mission meet with success."
