    AMSAT-EA developing URESAT-1 satellite

    AMSAT-EA is already working on the mission of what will be the first
    satellite of URE (Spains national amateur radio society), URESAT-1.

    A translation of post by URE says:

    At the IberRadio Fair, held in September, the possible functionalities that this satellite could implement were shown.

    Details of the evolutions planned for the URESAT satellite are based on the experience of the previous GENESIS missions, with the GENESIS-N and
    GENESIS-L satellites, launched into space with Firefly on September 3 (although, they failed to reach orbit due to failure of the thruster), and EASAT-2 and Hades, which will launch with SpaceX on January 10 from Cape Canaveral.

    Although the final functionalities must be approved by the URE itself, it
    is expected that said satellite will incorporate an FM voice repeater, FSK transmissions and some type of on-board experiment, which could be a camera with SSDV transmissions or some type of propellant.

    If the necessary financing is obtained, it is expected that this satellite could be sent into space by the end of 2022.
