AMSAT News Service Special Bulletin 101.01
 From AMSAT HQ KENSINGTON, MD
DATE April 11, 2019
To All RADIO AMATEURS
BID: $ANS-101.01

On October 29, 2018, the Diwata-2 microsatellite was launched on a
H-2A launch vehicle from the Tanegashima Space Center, Tanegashima,
Japan. Diwata-2 was developed by the PHL-Microsat program now
succeeded by the STAMINA4Space program, and in cooperation with
Tohoku University and Hokkaido University. The satellite carries an
amateur radio payload that has been tested and is now ready for
service.

At the request of the STAMINA4Space program, AMSAT hereby designates
Diwata-2 as Philippines-OSCAR 101 (PO-101). We congratulate the
owners and operators of PO-101, thank them for their contribution to
the amateur satellite community, and wish them continued success on
this and future projects.

Drew Glasbrenner, KO4MA
