I offer the following in the interest of safety of all AMSAT-Florida
List members. Not only does the AFDB offer protection against most
electromagnetic psychotronic mind control carriers, but can shield one
from the higher frequencies that AMSAT satellite builders seems to be
If your contemplating getting on the future P3E and Eagle satellites
and looking to be active on S-Band and higher frequencies, I can't
stress how important this could be. It just might save your life. Or at
the very least, keep you from frying your brain. And who wants to talk
with a fellow Ham Radio Satellite Operator sporting a half cooked
brain. There are plenty of them on 75 meters to keep you entertained.
So don't delay, build yours today and be the first on your block to be
totally RF and electromagnetic psychotronic mind protected. ;-)

4/17 5:30 AM PDT: We have received confirmed orbital parameters
from Kosmotras, and they are posted on the Dnepr 2 mission page.?
CP4 has also been heard from over Denmark, so all beaconing
CubeSats have been contacted!
4/17 3:30 AM PDT: CAPE1 has been heard by multiple amateur radio
operators in Europe, and it is officially functional as well.
4/17 2:20 AM PDT: An audio file of Libertad1 recorded at Cal
Poly's earth station can be heard here.
4/17 1:55 AM PDT: The operators of Libertad1 are declaring their
satellite as officially functional!
4/17 1:30 AM PDT: Cal Poly tracked a very low western pass and was
able to hear both CAPE1 and Libertad1! Denmark was also able to
hear both satellites as the passed overhead. CP4 will turn on and
begin to beacon at 4:32 AM PDT.
4/17 1:20 AM PDT: The confirmed deployment times are approximately
10 seconds earlier than anticipated. The TLEs will be updated on
the Dnepr Launch 2 page when the rest of the orbital parameters
Seven CubeSats were aboard this launch, six 1-U CubeSats along
with a single 3-U CubeSat. Launch details can be reached by

Hi all,At 0645 UTC April 17, a Dnepr rocket lifted off from Kazakhstan and
sucessfully deployed 7 CubeSats (along with 7 other satellites from
Arabia, and the Ukraine) into orbit.We offer our sincerest
everyone on a successful launch! ¡Ofrecemos las
felicitaciones especiales a Colombia por el lanzamiento con exito de su
primer satélite! ¡Gracias por permitirnos ser una parte de la mision!
our special congratulations to Colombia on the successful launch of
satellite! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this mission!
We hope that you all are able to help us track the satellites. We
expect CAPE 1
and Libertad-1 to start beaconing by the time you receive this email,
and CP4 turning on 2 hours after launch. We will update the TLE's on our
website, www.cubesat.org, as soon as we receive them to ensure accurate

Subject: [CubeSat] Dnepr Launch Information
This email is confirming that the Dnepr launch is still set for April 17,
2007 at 0646:35 UTC. The TLEs have been updated on our website, and we plan
on using the discussion board at http://polysat.calpoly.edu/irc/ to allow
satellite trackers to discuss what's been found. We will also be posting
updates from Kosmotras regarding the status of the launch as soon as we
it on the website and the discussion boards.
We are encouraging all participants with a groundstation to help track CP4.
CP4 will autonomously transmit a sensor snapshot once every two minutes
while in orbit. This transmission will be on 437.325 MHz, at 1200bps FSK,
using AX.25 packetized digital data. Please note that it is FSK, not AFSK,
which will require you to set your radios to "single side band" (SSB)
instead of "FM mode". This sensor snapshot is preceded by a six second CW
preamble that can be decoded as the satellite's call sign. CP4's autonomous
beacon contains sensor data that can be used to determine satellite's
status. A program that can make sense of the binary data encoded in the
AX.25 packets will be made available to community soon (probably
PolySat website). The information in this beacon would be useful to us,
along with the recorded receive signal strength, should any anomalies occur
early in our mission. We would like to encourage station operators to
capture CP4's downlink and submit files to: polysat(a)gmail.com [or
Thank you all again for your participation,
