The University of Washington's HuskySat-1 CubeSat is scheduled to be
deployed from the Cygnus NG-12 spacecraft at 22:30 UTC today.
HuskySat-1 carries an AMSAT VHF/UHF linear transponder that will be
made available for amateur use following its primary mission to test a
pulsed plasma thruster and experimental K band (24 GHz) communications

While the satellite completes it's scientific mission, check out the
best resource for learning how to work through linear transponder sat-
ellites (and other types of amateur satellites). For a limited time,
AMSAT is making the “Getting Started With Amateur Satellites” book
available as a download with any paid new or renewal membership
purchased via the AMSAT Store. This offer is only available with
purchases completed online, and for only a limited time. A perennial
favorite, Getting Started is updated every year with the latest
amateur satellite information, and is the premier primer of satellite
operation. The book is presented in PDF format, in full color, and
covers all aspects of making your first contacts on a ham radio

Please take advantage of this offer today by visiting the AMSAT store
at https://www.amsat.org/shop/ and selecting any membership option.
While there, check out AMSAT’s other items, including the M2 LEOpack
antenna system, Arrow antennas, AMSAT shirts, and other swag. Be sure
to view your cart before going to checkout. If you add a membership
and then go directly to checkout, you’ll never see an option to add
your free gift.

[ANS thanks the AMSAT Office for the above information]


In addition to regular membership, AMSAT offers membership in the
President's Club. Members of the President's Club, as sustaining
donors to AMSAT Project Funds, will be eligible to receive addi-
tional benefits. Application forms are available from the AMSAT
