CanX-1

Space News

CanX-1 is an amateur satellite built by students at the University of Toronto, in Toronto, Canada. The satellite was launched this morning and we are expecting to receive a signal from it as it makes its first pass over our ground station. I would like to ask anyone interested to listen for its beacon and report back whether they can hear it.
