AMSAT News Service Bulletin 135.01 From AMSAT HQ KENSINGTON, MD. DATE May 14, 2020 To All RADIO AMATEURS BID: $ANS-135.01
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.
