to $1,000 for those that contribute to the Fox-1Cliff and -1D crowdsourcing
campaign at https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/6pz92/ab/561Zd between now and
December 31st. Make your donation twice as valuable by taking advantage of
this opportunity and contributing before the end of the year, and help AMSAT
fund the launch of the next two satellites in the Fox-1 series.

a SpaceX Falcon 9, Fox-1Cliff and -1D carry university experiments from
Pennsylvania State-Erie, Vanderbilt, University of Iowa, cameras provided by
Virginia Tech, as well as amateur radio voice repeaters capable of U/V or
L/V operation.


Donations of $100 or more are eligible for a special AMSAT Fox challenge
coin, and $1,000 or more qualifies for a plaque with an actual solar panel
cover from Fox-1Cliff or -1D. (We've nearly exhausted our coin supply and
