Preparing for TAMSAT linear transponder tests
URKSAT-3USAT, a three unit CubeSat developed to provide SSB/CW communications in a 680 km Low Earth Orbit (LEO), is expected to launch in mid-April.

TAMSAT the Turkish Amateur Satellite Technologies Organisation have produced a  V/U linear transponder with an input of 145.940-145.990 and an output of 435.200-435.250 MHz, there will be a CW beacon on 437.225 MHz.

The VHF/UHF transponder and all other subsystems, except the stabilization, are doubled for redundancy. Where possible, both COTS systems and in-house development is employed.
