UHF Communications Equipment

I believe this is the most likely component for the UHF communications system.

Besides using most of the CubeSAT internal kit equipment. I intend to design a Raspberry Pi Zero to go up with it. Inspired by the new micro board design I believe it would be possible to create a little on board network of computers with the remaining space using the new Raspberry Pi Zero.

At least thats the idea.

    I didn’t really explain my rational for using UHF. Now the biggest reason is the total expense of communicating with the satellite. Using S-Band would cost way too much money on the ground. UHF is cheap and affordable and using UHF also reduces the overall payload weight of the hardware.
