Two cubesats from Australia and two from the Philippines were deployed into orbit from the International Space Station on October 6. They are Australia's Binar-1 (digital; uplink and downlink both on 70 centimeters) and CUAVA-1 (also digital, but operating on multiple bands between 145 MHz and 76 GHz); plus Maya-3 and -4 from the Philippines (downlink only, APRS, CW and GMSK, 2 meters and 70 centimeters). Their launches were coordinated by the Japanese space agency, JAXA.
