Phonesats Launched

Last night the Phonesats where launched with the Orbital Sciences Antares rocket.

Antares Launch 21-04-2013The primary goal of the Antares A-One mission is to deploy a test mass into low Earth Orbit that simulates the Cygnus spacecraft. But also onboard are the cubesats PhoneSat-1a, 1b & 2 and the Dove-1 cubesat.

PhoneSat satellites are emitting packets on the amateur radio spectrum to report different types of message, If you are an amateur radio operator and you can receive these packets, you have the great opportunity to contribute to the project by submitting them via our website.
