Opps! NORAD CAT ID 41476 is named STMSat 1. I confused the name with
SAMSAT which is non-functional at this time. Thanks to Nico PA0DLO.
Also I have added the following to this week's distribution:
MinXSS - NORAD CAT ID 41474
CADRE - NORAD CAT ID 41475
NODES 1- NORAD CAT ID 41477
NODES 2- NORAD CAT ID 41478
Note: I try to use SpaceTrack names, when possible, to avoid confusion later
Those interested in STMSat-1 should look at the following website for TLEs.
See AMSAT-BB for the latest news and a running commentary.
As of the date/time of this email, Space-Track has not yet posted TLEs.
As Bob KO6TZ has pointed out on AMSAT-BB, the TLEs for the ISS are also a
good short term starting point.
Also AMSAT-UK has more info on all the cubesats launched today and their
frequencies/modes at the following website.
The objects FG-OBJECT C, FG-OBJECT D, and FG-OBJECT E in last week's AMSAT
KEP Distribution have been identified with the much appreciated help of Nico

Therefore, OUFTI-1 (NORAD CAT ID 41458), [email protected] (NORAD CAT ID 41459), and
AAUSAT4 (NORAD CAT ID 41460) will be so identified in this week's
