I have a little question here. Will FOX-1 use 2m uplink? I know the current preferred band for many future satellite is 70cm due to the low interference possibilities, but for low budget partial homebrew stations a 2m FM Uplink is a great news, so just checking, will be there a 2m FM uplink on currently planned satellites?

Thanks and 73,

>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 ?

We are not manifested yet. We passed on a launch that was offered earlier this year because it was only to ISS altitude. So, we don't have an exact date, or even a vehicle or orbit to report, just that we are on the list.
