HuskySat-1 Designated HuskySat-OSCAR 107 (HO-107)

On November 2, 2019, the HuskySat-1 cubesat launched on the Cygnus NG-
12 mission from Wallops Island, Virginia, USA. The satellite was con-
structed by the Husky Satellite Lab at the University of Washington,
and utilizes an AMSAT-constructed radio system for primary communica-
tions. Deployed from the Cygnus vehicle on January 31, 2020 after de-
parting the ISS, HuskySat-1 began a 3-month educational mission. Upon
completion of that mission, the satellite began operation of a V/u
linear transponder in amateur service.

At the request of the Husky Satellite Lab and AMSAT teams, AMSAT here-
by designates HuskySat-1 as HuskySat-OSCAR 107 (HO-107). We congratu-
late the Husky Satellite Lab, thank them for their contribution to the
amateur satellite community, and wish them continued success on this
and future projects.
