Dear Friends, 

 

The launch of LUSEX, second AMSAT ARGENTINA amateur satellite next May 30, will mark an extraordinary event for our Institution and the fostering of hope for the satellite community. Details of LUSEX (LU Satellite EXperiment) are available on http://lusex.org.ar . 

 

As mentioned on the announcement of the launch of this experiment, Amsat Argentina has been working on, for several years, to keep alive the dream of many Argentine amateurs: to get back into Space with their own satellite as a follow-up of the legendary 1990's LUSAT-1, making use of the benefits of Technological advancement of our days. 

 

We believe technical activities and the development of experiments in near space share the same goals: preserving the human group, enhancing their capabilities as well as disseminating and guiding the education and development of the activity, meanwhile contributing to Space available resources. 

 

Satellogic Enterprises already launched three low orbit satellites: Captain Beto, Manolito, and Tita, two of which transmit telemetry and data currently in UHF identifying themselves with callsign LU7AA. Our agreement with Satellogic Enterprises allowed us to ride a linear analog amateur radio transponder and corresponding antenna aboard one of their next satellite, ÑUSAT-1. 

 

AMSAT-LU provides simultaneous support for this mission and the ÑUSAT-2 mission, by operating one of the control stations at Tortuguitas, Buenos Aires. 

 

The experiment developed by Amsat-LU evolved from an original design of our colleague and partner William, PE1RAH. The electronic adaptation, mechanics, and software was made by LUSEX group and was mounted on a 10 x 10 centimeters radiating plate, in which components of the power supply as well as a duplexer and dual band antenna were also incorporated. 

 

This set was installed on the Ñusat-1 bus, which supplies power and is integrated as part of several other experiments this satellite will perform. 

 

The transponder receives UHF which is broadcasted in VHF, has a bandwidth of 30 kHz and an output power of 250 mW. 

 

435,935 ~ 435,965 are LSB/CW uplink.

145,965 ~ 145,935 are USB/CW downlink.

145,900 Basic CW Telemetry.

 

The launch will be done from a Chinese launcher to a polar orbit at 500 km altitude, with inclination of 97 degrees from Equator. 

 

73 AMSAT ARGENTINA
