    ARLS011 RadFxSat (Fox-1B) FM Satellite Set to Launch in November

    The next AMSAT Fox-1 satellite, RadFxSat (Fox-1B), is scheduled to launch on November 10 at 0947 UTC. RadFxSat (Fox-1B), which will carry a 435/145 MHz FM transponder, is one of four CubeSats making up the NASA ELaNa XIV mission, riding as secondary payloads aboard the Joint Polar Satellite System-1 (JPSS-1)
    mission. JPSS-1 will launch on a Delta II vehicle from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.

    Information on ElaNa can be found at, https://www.nasa.gov/content/about-elana .

    RadFxSat is a partnership with Vanderbilt University Institute for Space and Defense Electronics (ISDE) and hosts four payloads for the study of radiation effects on commercial off-the-shelf components. It will carry a Fox-1 style FM U/V repeater with an uplink on 435.250 MHz (67.0 Hz CTCSS) and a downlink on 145.960 MHz. Satellite and experiment telemetry will be downlinked via the DUV subaudible telemetry stream, which can be decoded using FoxTelem software.

    The FoxTelem software can be downloaded from, https://www.amsat.org/foxtelem-software-for-windows-mac-linux/ .
