Here is an update on the GOSAT objects now in orbit.

Does anyone have a list of what each object is now believed to be?

Listen for KAGAYAKI Satellite. Object D is thought to be KAGAYAKI

Per AMSAT News Service Bulletin 046.01 from AMSAT HQ SILVER SPRING, MD.
dated February 15, 2009:

"The KAGAYAKI satellite has not been heard since it was launched with
Japan's January 23 GOSAT satellite. KAGAYAKI was to transmit morse
code on FM after separation from the H-2A booster. If operational KAGAYAKI
should be tranmitting morse code on FM or 9600bps packet at 437.375MHz.
The command team thinks the satellite's output power may very low
because the antenna or solar panel has not extended properly. Ground
controllers have been searching for a downlink signal using a spectrum
analyzer."
