There is no present requirement for the use of licensed
callsigns on the satellites.  I wish I had learned than more
than a week month before launch.  That is why PCSAT-1 always
comes up with the W3ADO-1 callsign.  And we have to upload the
PCSAT-1 callsign after every reset.  

That said, however, they are required to abide by all of the
other requirements of the Amateur Satellite Service.

And I am all for keeping it that way.
