RadFXSat/Fox-1B Launch Opportunity Announcement November 2016

AMSAT has been notified by Scott Higginbotham, Mission Manager for ELaNa-12
(Fox-1A launch) and ELaNa-14 (RadFxSat/Fox-1B launch) in NASA's Launch
Services Program at Kennedy Space Center, "The ELaNa-14 CubeSat complement
is scheduled to fly along with NOAA's JPSS-1 spacecraft on a Delta II that
will be launching from VAFB on November 15, 2016. Due to a number of
CubeSats recently dropping off of the manifest for this flight, a door has
been opened, and it is my pleasure to inform you that your respective
CubeSats (RadFXSat, GoldenEagle-1, EagleSat, and MiRaTA) have all been
officially added to the manifest." 

AMSAT will begin working with Tyvak, the CubeSat Dispenser and Dispenser
Integration Contractor for this flight. Additional news regarding the
schedule milestones toward meeting launch requirements will be released as
more information becomes available.

In a message sent to AMSAT Vice President Engineering, Jerry Buxton, N0JY,
Higginbotham concluded, "Congratulations and welcome aboard!"
