First, sorry the KEPs did not make it out last week. Wednesday night (May
14th) the storms and tornadoes hit the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.
My house avoided damage, but my WIFI internet provider apparently was hit by
lightning. As a result I did not get the KEPs out. But, they are out for
Second, CUBEBUG-1 has been identified as the object with the Cat # of 39153.
I have dropped cat # 39151 from the distribution.
Satellites ADDED =>
I have added a new satellite this week:
ESTCUBE-1 Cat# 39161.
The identity of CUBEBUG-1 continues to be in doubt as last week's Cat# 39150
proved to be wrong.
This week's possibilities are Cat# 39151 or Cat# 39153.
Both are in this week's distributionas follows:
CUBEBUG? Cat# 39151
CUBEBUG?? Cat# 39153
Satellites DROPPED =>
Therefore, Cat# 39150 has been dropped.
Happy Satellite Hunting!
The catalog numbers of the satellites launched last week have changed. This
is to be expected as the amateur satellite community improves their
identification of the satellites as they separate after launch.
This week I have dropped the Phonesats as they have either decayed or run
out of battery power by now.
The following have been dropped from the KEPs:
GRAHAM Cat# 39142
BELL Cat# 39143
ALEXANDER Cat# 39146
The following remain in the KEP distribution:
OSSI-1 Cat# 39131 (this satellite was listed as Cat# 39130 last week)
BEESAT-3 Cat# 39134 (the BEESATs each have their own Catalog number this
SOMP Cat# 39135
BEESAT-2 Cat# 39136 (the BEESATs each have their own Catalog number this
And we have a new satellite this week:
CUBEBUG-1 Cat# 39154 (437.445 MHz using 1200 bps AX.25 AFSK FM packet
radio, callsign LU1VZ-11)
