The Thailand Amateur Radio Satellite Group are developing their first satellite JAISAT-1.

The group hope to complete the satellite, a 1U CubeSat, by the end of 2015. Plans include a 145 to 435 MHz linear transponder for SSB/CW communications, APRS, a packet bulletin board system (PBBS) and a HD camera for imaging.

The Radio Amateur Society of Thailand (RAST) carries an article about the satellite on their English language website at

The group are looking for a circuit diagram of a 145/435 MHz linear transponder. Anyone who can assist them with the transponder should contact the JAISAT-1 Project Manager Tanan Rangseeprom HS1JAN, email: hs1jan<at>tamsat.org

At the present time no arrangements have been made for a launch.
