offenbar gibt es noch einen neuen interessanten russischen 
Amateurfunksatelliten namens “Yubileiny”, der gestern erfolgreich 
gestartet wurde und sich mit RS-30 meldet:


The “Yubileiny” small spacecraft was developed by the JSC “Academician 
M.F. Reshetnev” Information Satellite Systems” jointly with the 
Aerospace Vehicle Laboratory (Kaluga), RPE “Geofizika-Cosmos” (Moscow), 
“Saturn” (Krasnodar), Lavochkin NPO (Moscow), the “Ramensk Instrument 
Building Company” (Ramensk), Khrunichev State Cosmic Research and 
Production Center (Moscow), the Siberian State Aerospace University 
(Krasnoyarsk). The motive for its development was the 50th anniversary 
of the first artificial satellite launching.

With the help of equipment that is installed on the satellite, 
radio-amateurs all over the world will be able to receive information on 
the history of space development and domestic cosmonautics achievements. 
The spacecraft is expected to work in the cyclic operation: every 4 
minutes spoken messages, video pictures, and signals imitating 
call-signs of the first artificial satellite will be transmitted over 
the radio channel at the international frequency range of 435 MHz.

The launching of “Yubileiny” spacecraft is planned on May, by “Rokot” 
launch vehicle. It will be injected into orbit as an additional load 
jointly with three military satellites. At present, preliminary 
activities at “Plesetsk” launching site are in progress.

“Yubileiny” spacecraft is developed on basis of non-hermetic platform 
that will serve as the base for other small satellites with the mass 
under 100 kg. With its launching the series of devices and systems, 
manufactured by the JSC “Academician M.F. Reshetnev” Information 
Satellite Systems” and other domestic enterprises, will get the flight
