Hi Nick,

You mentioned KiwiSat, my understanding is that they needed to raise 
$1 million to buy a launch into a 700 km orbit. I am not aware that they've raised it yet.

I'm aware of these satellites planning to launch this year: 

A 2013 Yasny Dnepr Launch should have
- FUNcube-1 435/145 MHz linear transponder
- Delfi n3xT 435/145 MHz linear transponder
- Triton-1 435/145 MHz single channel FM to DSB transponder
- Triton-2 435/2408 MHz FM transponder + 435/145 MHz FM to DSB transponder
- CPUT ZACube-1 435/145 MHz FM transponder

In 2nd quarter 2013 TURKSAT-3USAT with a 145/435 MHz linear transponder should be launched

Ukube-1 with 435/145 linear transponder should fly in June, 2013

FOX-1 with a 145/435 MHz singe channel FM transponder at end of the year, can anyone confirm if it's still year-end ?

The IARU satellite pages are also worth checking, see
