Hi Rich,

The November/December 2013 AMSAT Journal includes charts containing
the frequency and operating modes of the satellites launched from
Wallops Island and on the DNEPR ride. As is usually the case, there is
more information included about the transponder satellites which are
of interest to our satellite operators. This issue of the Journal
contains just the summary information because the lead time to
publication was going on right at launch time. I hope many will find
the frequency charts handy to keep around their operating position.

The telemetry-only cubesats dedicated to research missions don't often
publish articles and lots of photos in the amateur radio press. When
the students have the opportunity to write about their project the
AMSAT Journal team will be delighted to work with them to get into
print. (It might be that publishing their senior paper or thesis has
priority in their schedule.)

Many of the cubesats from Europe often receive their detailed coverage
in the OSCAR News from AMSAT-UK and/or the AMSAT-DL Journal.
