From AMSAT HQ KENSINGTON, MD
DATE December 7, 2018
To All RADIO AMATEURS
On December 3rd, 2018, JY1Sat was launched on a Falcon 9 vehicle
from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Part of Spaceflight’s
SSO-A: Smallsat Express launch, JY1Sat is a project of the Crown
Prince Foundation of Jordan. Telemetry has been received and decoded
around the world since the launch.
At the request of the Crown Prince Foundation, AMSAT hereby desig-
nates JY1Sat as Jordan-OSCAR 97 (JO-97). We congratulate the owners
and operators of JO-97, thank them for their contribution to the
amateur satellite community, and wish them continued success on this
and future projects.
