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.
