Three Amateur Radio Satellite Deployments in November

A Dnepr launch

A Dnepr launch

In his blog Nader Omer ST2NH notes the large number of  satellites carrying amateur radio payloads that are expected to be launched in the next two weeks.

There will be an estimated 34 new satellite downlinks to be received with two of the satellites also providing 435/145 MHz linear transponders for SSB/CW communications. It will present a considerable challenge to correctly identify all satellites and match them to the NORAD Two-Line Element data in the days after deployment.

In a single week in November we should see:
November 19-20 ISS CubeSat deployment
November 20 Minotaur-1 launch
November 21 Yasny Dnepr launch

Mineo Wakita JE9PEL has produced a list of frequencies of the satellites carrying amateur radio payloads that are planned to be launched in November.
