Hello all

Saw some information being exchanged about Sumbandila.  Please note that the Amateur payload will probably not be switched on straight after launch.  Commissioning is most likely to be performed from Stellenbosch South Africa only.  So telemetry will only be heard whilst in contact with the groundstation and NOT on the amateur frequencies.  There are a number of hams involved in the project so rest assured the amateur payload will be supported as soon as practical and safe.
