AMSAT-UK congratulates the Fox team

AMSAT-UK LogoOn behalf of all members of AMSAT-UK I send our congratulations the AMSAT team in the USA for all their hard work in recent years on FOX-1A which having been successfully launched, and from which telemetry signals have been successfully received and decoded on earth, is now known as AO-85.

This is a great achievement. I wish the team well during the forthcoming commissioning, and we all hope that the new satellite will have a long and useful life operating in the Amateur Satellite Service.


Martin Sweeting, G3YJO

Chairman AMSAT-UK
