With any luck, AO-7 will outlive (or perhaps it already has) the IBM
punch card that caused the whole 5-digit thing in the first place.  Of
the constants in the universe, the first one is 42, immediately followed
by either 72 or 80, depending on your background.  We apparently had
programmers define the KEPs format, as both lines are 71 characters
long... :)

(For source code, columns 73-80 were reserved for sequence numbers, so
that when you dropped your deck, the cards could be reassembled in the
proper order.)

Hi  Masa

Success for new CUBEs

I will be hoping EQUISat  will also succeed.
Opportunity to verify the low costs of a CUBE in operation.
And who knows, look on land the brightness of their LED.
The predictionis that after 26 orbit has a flash of 400W.
I remembered the CUBE FITSAT with similar proposal.

Assunto: [amsat-bb] CubeSats deploy from ISS 13th July

JAXA announced NRCSD#14 nine CubeSats deploy from ISS at 13th July.
The nine CubeSats are RainCube, Radix, CubeRRT, HaloSat, TEMPEST-D,
EnduroSat AD, EQUISat, MemSat and RadSat-g.

EnduroSat AD, EQUISat and MemSat will operate on amateur band. IARU Amateur
Satellite Frequency Coordination shows following operation plan.


EnduroSat AD
?437.050MHz CW, GFSK 9k6

EQUISat
   435.550MHz CW, FSK 9k6

MemSat
   437.350MHz BPSK 9k6


Happy chasing!

If you want to get in line for an ISS contact you need to fill out the
paperwork. It's due by NOV for next year. I believe all the slots are filled
for now.?---?

 Subject: Re: [amsat-bb] View from the space station question

 I just got back from watching the parade in our city, wow what a show !

Charlie, it is wonderful to meet you and to get your offer to help us out.?
Yes that would be great start, in all fairness, we'd have to give credit to
the student and their school for their questions.?

Based on my rough calculations it is NOT a daunting task... Here are some
stats I found?? ( ref https://www.amsat.org/amsat/ariss/news/arissnews.txt? )?
a) School contacts started in 2000 and there are a total of 1236 sessions to
date
b) Assuming a 10 minute usable time for one pass and one Q/A per minute we
are looking at 12360 interactions?
c) At 1 line of text per question and 3 lines per answer we will be looking
at roughly 12360 times 4 = 50000 lines of text
??? - that is probably less than one day's interaction on this BBS (hi!)?

So, it's no big deal, and it gets better when we look at the following
things working to our benefit -
a) time is on our side, (as long as we K.I.S.S.)
b) questions are submitted in advance (so Charlie AJ9N may already have
those),
c) for the answers that we don't have, the school contact person may be in
Charlie's list, so we can request them for any record of their sessions they
may have,
d) we can request ARISS & NASA admin to let the astronauts, when they return
to Earth, to review our "Almanac" and add any missing answers at their
leisure, and complete the picture.
also,
e) for starters, the Almanac should be a static page, (sorry no RegEx stuff
please)? f) later we may add pictures, cross references, related items
and/or a public comments section, but only as long as the underlying web
platform permits it without increasing our work-load.?
g) this could be hosted as a sub-domain of ARISS or AMSAT websites, thus
isolating one from the other of any design changes or content updates,?

After a lifetime in hi-tech, if there is one thing I have realized is that
WE techies have to pave the road for our future generations, and a nice soft
road for the little minds to wander on. :)?

Initial set of action items I think will be -
1) get sign-off and/or no objections from all stake-holders like AMSAT,
ARISS, NASA, etc.,? (who can help ?)?
2) review what we can get from Charlie's files? (I'll take this one)??
3) work with AMSAT-IT or ARISS-IT teams to figure out the right
implementation style (will need some help here)?

JoAnne, I saw your response, thank you, we'll need all the help we can get !??
Charlie, if you like you can send me a link to your shareable files for
action item (2), thank you !??

Today we are looking at the experiences of the ISS crew, in a few years it
may be settlers on the Moon or even Mars.?

 Hi all,
I am the ARISS Op who keeps track of everything, posts the first public
domain info, and who maintains the private ARISS stuff.? So I have just
about everything I think people are looking for. except for the crew
replies.? For those, one would need to get a copy of the video or audio that
was recorded by the school.? Some of us ARISS mentors get a copy from the
school, sometimes we don't.? For some schools, they are barely able to have
a contact, so it is debatable if they also have recording equipment.
I have zero time (I average 2 to 3 hours every day maintaining all of the
ARISS stuff) to crank out a list of the questions asked but if someone wants
to look at what the schools were going to ask, then I can provide that.? Now
that I retired for the second time, maybe I will have time to get back on HF
or the satellites.? I don't even remember when I was on HF last.
I am willing to zip file what are really the files that I post to AMSAT-BB
(which makes them in the public domain) and put to DropBox or email them
directly; they are my working copies that have a date and time stamp as part
of the file name.? Someone could go into each file and retrieve the
questions that were to be asked.? As has been stated by someone, not all get
answered.? And often times there are a few extra questions that get asked on
the fly which would not be in my lists.? Fortunately, we do eventually get
the questions from Russia but often times that is after the fact, so they
may not be in the announcements.
My rough math on the number is somewhere close to 26000 ARISS questions.
Comments?

>
> + 1 point for each grid square activated outside your home grid square
>     using a single-channel FM satellite transponder
> + 2 points for each grid square activated outside your home grid square
>     using a linear (SSB/CW) satellite transponder.
> + 3 points for each grid square activated outside your home grid square
>     using a digital mode satellite transponder.
> + 1 additional point for added to each grid square score for activating
>     a state, province, or DX entity outside your home entities
> + 5 points for for advertising your grid operation using an open and
>     public social media account, tagging @????? or #amsat at least
>         24 hours in advance of the activation.
> + 5 points for photographing your grid operation and posting them

> Eric,  KV1J will be active on the Sats from the French island of

> from 3 July through 17 July as FP/KV1J. This will be his 12th trip
> to the
> island. He mostly operate the low bands and 6 meters. When the WX is

> he plans
> to also be on the FM birds using a pair of FT-817s and an Arrow

>
> Most of the time he will be grid GN17. If he is on the main island

> 10A-4P run of the show.

> I am looking for AMSAT people to both help with the inside table and also

>
> Being a STEM event, there will be many young people in attendance, (General
> public as well as Boy and Girl Scouts), and they get a chance to earn a
> STEM
> patch by answering questions from exhibitors like US.  Each year I do this,
