Successful CubeSat launch

On Saturday, January 31 the CubeSats FIREBIRD-2, GRIFEX and ExoCube
carrying amateur radio payloads were successfully launched on a Delta
2 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base

The GEO-CAPE ROIC In-Flight Performance Experiment (GRIFEX) is a 3U
CubeSat developed by MXL that will perform engineering assessment of a
JPL-developed all digital in-pixel high frame rate Read-Out Integrated
Circuit (ROIC).

The GRIFEX team at the University of Michigan received the first
reception report of the spacecraft's 437.485 MHz 9600 bps AX.25 GMSK
signal fromJan van Gils PE0SAT in the Netherlands.

FIREBIRD (Focused Investigations of Relativistic Electron Burst
Intensity, Range, and Dynamics) is a CubeSat dual satellite mission
examining the spatial scale and spatial temporal ambiguity of
magnetospheric microbursts. The project is a collaboration between
researchers at the University of New Hampshire and Montana State
University. Among the radio amateurs involved were Steve Longworth
KR1C and David Klumpar KD7MFJ.

In Germany Mike Rupprecht DK3WN received the 19.2k bps GMSK AX.25
signals on 437.405 and 437.230 MHz from the two FIREBIRD-2 1.5U

At the time of writing no signals had been reported for CalPoly's
ExoCube (CP-10) which should transmit on 437.270MHz using 9600 bps
AX.25 FSK with "X03" sent in Morse code every 45 seconds.
