The NORAD CAT IDs for UBAKUSAT and 1KUNS-PF have been swapped. Nico, PA0DLO
reports that detailed Doppler measurements indicate that the NORAD CAT IDs
are as follows:
1KUNS-PF is NORAD CAT ID 43466
UBAKUSAT is NORAD CAT ID 43467
Please make the appropriate changes to your tracking program.
Also per Nico Janssen, PA0DLO, two Chinese microsats (LONGJIANG 1 and 2 )
have been launched towards the moon from Xichang on 05-20-2018 around 21:00
The following cubesat TLEs have been added to this week's AMSAT-NA TLE
LONGJIANG 1 - NORAD CAT ID 43471
LONGJIANG 2 - NORAD CAT ID 43472
(NORAD CAT ID's per Space-Track)

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has announced that three
cubesat carrying Amateur Radio payloads were deployed from the ISS on May 11
at around 1030 UTC. See AMSAT News Service bulletin ANS-133 for details.
The following cubesats have been added to this week's AMSAT-NA TLE
distribution and are designated by Space-Track as follows:
UBAKUSAT (Turkey)- NORAD CAT ID 43466 (a 3U cubesat with a CW beacon at
437.225 MHz, a telemetry beacon at 435.325 MHZ, and a linear transponder
with a 435.200 - 435.250 MHz downlink / 145.940 - 145.990 MHz uplink)
1KUNS-PF (Kenya)- NORAD CAT ID 43467 (a 3U cubesat with a 1200 bps or 9600
bps telemetry beacon at 437.300 MHz)
Irazu (Costa Rica) - NORAD CAT ID 43468 (a 1U cubesat with a 9600 bps
telemetry beacon at 436.500 MHz)
Nico Janssen (PA0DLO) reminds us that it is still too early to tell if the
above CAT ID's are correct for each object. There may be changes.
The Chinese satellite Zhou Enlai (NORAD CAT ID 43156) has been added to this
weeks AMSAT-NA TLE distribution. In case you missed this on AMSA-BB, see
below Nico Janssen's comment on this satellite.
>From Nico Janssen, PA0DLO:
The Chinese amateur satellite Zhou Enlai (initially know as Huai'An 1,
HA 1) appears to be active on a downlink frequency near 437.650 MHz.
Its coordinated downlink frequency for telemetry is 437.350 MHz and
for voice 436.950 MHz. For details see:
This 2U cubesat is object 43156, 2018-008B. Let's see if they can activate
its FM repeater and SSTV component.
