Hi Steve, Bird is flying well and sending very nice pictures. Last night one of my ham friend did record the transmission with a hand held 2 meter radio with the stock antenna. Very Well designed and developed system congratulation to all team for this high quality work.

Folks, and than finding out just before letting go that gadget that one of the antennas is missing....I was watching the launch attempt. And that cost at least as much as the deficit of the city of Vallejo, the difference is that Vallejo had to let go half of the police force, and with that launching, is just "happened " so

Hi Steve. By coincidence we just had a reunion of the Australis Oscar 5 team here in Australia. AO5 was launched in January 1970; over 40 years ago. Paul Dunn.

Hi Steve, First of all congratulations and thanks for the Ham Radio support. I am not sure if you can share with us but just curiosity how many microcontrollers ARISSat-1 have ? And how many of them are PIC? :) Thanks,

Hi Steve, Thanks...Project OSCAR was what I was thinking of but couldn't remember when I wrote the post. OSCAR, as I recall, was very successful in its day for the objectives set for it. I look forward to more info.

Sorry for the confusion, for all of the above replies, I should have signed them: Screen name "tinkerer" is Steve Bible.
