June 2009 launch for first Chinese Amateur Radio satellite
Michael Chen BD5RV reports that the first Chinese Amateur Radio satellite has been renamed from CAS-1 to XW-1 and is planned to launch next June.
On the AMSAT Bulletin Board Michael writes:
I just came back from a hamvention and met Alan, BA1DU there. The 1st Chinese amateur satellite is now going smoothly. This satellite was formerly named CAS-1 and is now XW-1. It takes a beacon and three cross band transponders: FM, linear, and digital.
The satellite is planned to be launched in June 2009 by a CZ-2C rocket in Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in North China.
It is understood that the satellite will carry a CW Telemetry Beacon, Linear Transponder, FM repeater and a Digital Store-forward Transponder with uplinks in the 2 metre Amateur band and downlinks on 70 cms with 500 mW output.
The satellite is expected to have a mass of 30 kgs and be launched into a sun syncronous orbit with a 670km apogee.
