FOX 1E Coming Soon!

Speaking of AMSAT-NA VP of Engineering Jerry ... related via his Twitter account:

"RadFxSat-2/Fox-1E is out of our hands and in the hands of
@Virgin_Orbit to fly as part of Launcher One's first payload. Great
fun sharing in their new experience and first integration. And tours
of their facilities to boot!

The satellite will carry the RadFxSat 2 radiation effects experiment similar
to RadFxSat (Fox-1B) but will study new FinFET technology.

Fox-1E will also serve as a communications relay for amateurs worldwide
via a new Mode J linear transponder. The transponder is planned to be
30 kHz wide and will also include a 1200 bps BPSK telemetry beacon. The
purpose of the project is to test a design for a linear transponder that could
be made available to CubeSat builders as a secondary, or even primary,
Amateur Radio payload.. The communications and experiment missions
will run concurrently.
