New Launch Window Set for Two Fox-1 Satellites

The possible launch window for AMSAT's Fox-1Cliff and Fox-1D satellites has been pushed back by around a month, according to the AMSAT News Service, slipping from July 28 to the September 1-November 30, 2016 timeframe. 

The two cubesats are slated to be launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base on the new Spaceflight SHERPA platform aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The satellites will carry experiments from four universities as well as amateur radio voice repeaters.
