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.

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.
