Hi Trevor.
Thanks for all the info on two more transponders, one linear and one FM due for launch in June
I thought this comment from the owners was really nice:
"and an amateur radio payload provided by the AMSAT-NL and AMSAT-FR. These last payloads serve as a return favour to the satellite radio amateur community for the fact that the QB50 main mission can use the amateur bands during the full flight in 2016."

Just goes to show that use of amateur frequencies can have substantial benefits.
