OSCAR Number Administrator, Bill Tynan, W3XO reports that he has ad-
vised J. M. Wersinger, PhD, KI4YAU, Professor Emeritus and Director
of Auburn University's Student Space Program, that following the
successful NASA ELaNa III launch on October 28, 2011 of AubieSat-1,
and by the request of the AubieSat-1 team, the new satellite has
been assigned an OSCAR number.
Professor Wersinger documented that telemetry has been received from
the satellite. The IARU-Sat Website states that AubieSat-1 was fully
coordinated with the IARU.
Bill wrote, "Therefore, by the authority vested in me by the AMSAT-NA
President, I hereby designate AubieSat-1 as AubieSat Oscar 71 or AO-71
and welcome this newest OSCAR into the Amateur Radio satellite commun-
ity. On behalf of AMSAT-NA and the world's amateur radio satellite
community, I congratulate Professor Wersinger, Auburn University and
all of those responsible for building, testing and launching this new
CubeSat. May its mission meet with success."
