Hey Everybody--

Just a quick update from Cal Poly about the upcoming launch. Everything is going very well and we are very excited here. The launch is happening Monday night at 23:46 Pacific time / Tuesday morning at 02:46 Eastern time. There is a lot of information about frequencies, modes, keps, etc, on the main Cubesat webpage at www.cubesat.org

Due to the $8k cost of the private webcast last time, we are not doing it again. So, instead, we will be providing live updates on the Cubesat IRC channel. Point your favorite IRC client to #cubesat on irc.freenode.net  We will also be providing a MP3 download of launch countdown audio stream a few hours after launch. All of this will be accessible on the CubeSat webpage.

We also have a data packet entry form where you can enter data packets you received (from any satellite) at your earth station. The form is at: http://cubesat.atl.calpoly.edu/pages/missions/dnepr-launch-2/data-packet-form.php
