Hi all,

please find an update on the ISILaunch01 below:

1. Directly after the launch the orbit took the satellites directly over the
western part of the United States. Thanks to efforts by CalPoly and SRI, the
teams have been able to confirm that at least two of the four satellites are
transmitting beacon data. The two satellites that have been heard are
SwissCube and ITUpSAT1, which could be identified by their CW beacon.

We continue to wait for the first passes over the groundstations of the
teams in Europe, which should occur around 09:30 UTC.

best 73 on behalf of an excited ISILaunch01 team!
