I would like to ratify some mistakes in the text we sent. The name  of 
the satellite is NANOSATC-BR. The name  of the project coordinator of 
the satellite and the INPE is Mr. Otávio  Durão, not is Jose  Manuel  

Dear Domenico,   I think he  is not involved in this project. In 
conversations I had with the coordinators of the project  was informed 
only the support of Amateur  Radio  Association  Santamariense  -  ASRA 
 through  Lauro  Barbosa  Alves,  PY3EB.

Um forte abraço,

Pirajá, PS8RF

The Amateur Radio is supportive and helpful in any circumstance.
