Swing and a miss

The ARISSat-1 satellite inside the ISS, was to be turned on and use an external antenna in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's first manned space flight. No ground stations reported hearing the signals. AMSAT is working with our Russian partners to determine any problems and assist in correcting them.

The ARISSat-1 signals can be experienced during the 2011 Dayton Hamvention (May 20-22) in the AMSAT booth and around the arena. AMSAT will have the operational prototype running and people there to discuss the satellite and its operation.

Roscosmos has announced that the satellite will be deployed into orbit during the next EVA in llate July of this year.
