UKube-1 left Clyde Space in Glasgow on its way to Baikonur in Kazakhstan on December 12, 2013. The 3U CubeSat carries a set of AMSAT-UK FUNcube boards (FUNcube-2) to provide an Educational beacon and a 435/145 MHz linear transponder for amateur radio SSB/CW communications.
Reports on a space flight forum indicate that the Soyuz-2-1B/Fregat-M which will carry UKube-1 is currently expected to launch on March 27, 2014.
