The amateur radio equipment onboard will provide telecommand, telemetry and FM repeater functions. The spacecraft will be 3 axis stabilised and have deployable solar panels. Proposing a V/U transponder and requesting a 436.2MHz downlink and a 145.935 MHz uplink.
The satellite was launched on 28 December 2016 on a CZ-2D (2) rocket as a piggy-back payload. A launch mishap left the payloads in a lower than planned orbit.
