AMSAT-NA President Barry Baines, WD4ASW says that they have received a matching funds challenge! An anonymous donor will match up to $25,000.00 for Fox. Now is the time to take advantage of this opportunity to double your donation.
Barry writes, “We end 2012 with significant progress made on the development of Fox-1. A formal proposal to launch Fox-1B was submitted to the NASA ELaNA (Education Launch of Nanosatellites) program on November 19, 2012. NASA is expected to announce in late January or early February 2013 those projects that have been selected. This is our second ELaNA submission, and we believe the merits of this proposal are even stronger than our original Fox-1 proposal.”
