AMSAT reports that the TJREVERB CubeSat, developed by students at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Virginia, will carry a 435/145 MHz FM transponder. The University of Washington-Seattle’s HuskySat-1 has a 145/435 MHz SSB/CW transponder and was developed by students at the University of Washington in Seattle. The satellite will demonstrate plasma propulsion and high-gain telemetry, in advance of a larger CubeSat lunar mission.
Two satellites with Amateur Radio transponder payloads have been selected for future NASA launches.
