The following satellites have decayed from orbit and have been removed from
this week's AMSAT-NA TLE Distribution:
ALMASAT-1 - NORAD Cat ID 38078 (Decayed from orbit April 25, 2020).
nSIGHT1 - NORAD Cat ID 42726 (Decayed from orbit April 25, 2020).
The following satellite has been activated and added to this week's AMSAT-NA
RS-44 - NORAD Cat ID 44909.
Per Nico Janssen, PA0PLO concerning RS-44:
"The new amateur payload DOSAAF 85 (RS-44) appears to work very well.
Doppler measurements confirm that it is indeed object 44909,
2019-096E. The satellite identifies itself as "RS44" (i.e. Radio
Sputnik 44) on its CW beacon on 435.6043 kHz. The passband is
about 63 kHz wide. It may also have a downlink between 2400 and
2485 MHz. The frequencies of RS44/DOSAAF 85 have not been IARU
coordinated. The satellite is in an elliptical orbit with a perigee of
1175 km, an apogee of 1511 km and an inclination of 82.5 degrees.
The payload is apparently attached to the Breeze-KM upper stage of
a Rokot launch vehicle that launched three Gonets satellites on
December 26, 2019. It was originally expected to launch in 2015.
It is based on the Yubileiniy platform."
