Dear Friends,
It gives us great pleasure and satisfaction to say that 'HAMSAT-VO 52'  
has completed 6 years of successful operation in orbit. HAMSAT was  
launched on 5th May 2005 aboard PSLV-C6 from Sriharikotta.

The transponder and the beacon on-board were never been off the air,  
even for a second from the time they were switched 'ON'. Looking at  
the health parameters, HAMSAT is still in good condition and we are  
sure it would provide fruitful services for many more years to come.

On this happy occasion,we express our sincere thanks to the entire  
ISRO HAMSAT project team for this great feat. Our thanks to  
AMSAT-India, Kumar VU2BGS and Willaims PEIRAH for their contributions.
