CAMSAT CAS-6 satellite launched 2019-12-20

CAS-6 – en lite större satellit på 60 kg som har amatörradio ombord. Vi hoppas den blir en fin satellit med många FM-kontakter. Från AMSAT-UK:

CAMST’s amateur radio payload CAS-6 piggybacked on a technology test satellite TIANQIN-1 launched at 03:21 UTC on December 20, 2019 at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center of China using a CZ-4B launch vehicle.

Update December 20: Alan BA1DU reported:
“Today CAS-6 has been successfully launched, the satellite is currently in orbit testing, the amateur radio payload is expected to be operational in about three days. Thank you for your interest.”
