Students FM transponder Satellite Launched

CAS-2T a technical verification satellite for CAMSAT CAS-2 series amateur radio satellite launched at 23:42 UT 9 November 2016 on a CZ-11 rocket

The 2U CubeSat, developed by students from Fengtai District, Xicheng and Haidian District secondary schools, carries a ham radio 145/435 MHz FM transponder. CAS-2T will not be separated from the final stage of rocket, so the orbital life may be 10 to 30 days before the final stage of the rocket re-enters the atmosphere.
