Spaceflight’s SSO-A…An Amateur Radio Satellite Bonanza

SpaceX Falcon 9 from Vandenberg Air Force Base has no fewer than seventeen Amateur Radio satellite payloads.  A list of the known Amateur Radio missions, websites and their downlink frequencies is as  follows. Which is currently scheduled for Dec 2, 2018.


From the SSO-A Website

We’re launching our first fully dedicated rideshare mission, dubbed SSO-A SmallSat Express, later this year aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 out of Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

Not only does it represent the company’s first purchase of an entire Falcon 9 to accommodate the growing number of customers seeking affordable rideshare options to launch their spacecraft into orbit, it’s also an historic launch:

It’s the largest single rideshare mission from a US-based launch vehicle to date.

Spaceflight has contracted with 64 spacecraft from 34 different organizations for the mission to a Sun-Synchronous Low Earth Orbit. It includes 15 microsats and 49 cubesats from both commercial and government entities, of which more than 25 are from international organizations from 17 countries, including United States, Australia, Italy, Netherlands, Finland, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, UK, Germany, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Thailand, Poland, Canada, Brazil, and India.
