There is a launch this Monday night (EDT) with quite a few satellites in
the amateur bands. KD9KCK has been keeping track of details.
Bill Nye has LightSail-2 as well on 437.025 MHz!
My team could certainly use some help tracking the E-TBEx satellites.
These satellites will be exploring ionospheric disturbances with phased
locked transmissions. Details are here:
http://exploration.engin.umich.edu/tbex/. The orbit inclination is low, ~
18 degrees, and those of us up north will have a hard time tracking it.
TBEx-A @ 437.485 MHz
TBEx-B @ 437.535 MHz
If you're interested in tracking, please let me know!
