Diwata-2 Designated Philippines-OSCAR 101 (PO-101)

On October 29, 2018, the Diwata-2 microsatellite was launched on a H-2A launch vehicle from the Tanegashima Space Center, Tanegashima, Japan. Diwata-2 was developed by the PHL-Microsat program now succeeded by the STAMINA4Space program, and in cooperation with Tohoku University and Hokkaido University.  The satellite carries an amateur radio payload that has been tested and is now ready for service.
At the request of the STAMINA4Space program, AMSAT hereby designates Diwata-2 as Philippines-OSCAR 101 (PO-101).
