    SpaceX has announced that the SSO-A SmallSat Express mission, previously scheduled to launch on Wednesday, November 28, has been postponed due to extreme high-altitude winds at Vandenberg Air Force Base.

    A new launch date will be announced once it's been coordinated with the range.

    The SSO-A mission will carry several Amateur Radio satellites in addition to AMSAT's Fox-1Cliff. The others include FUNcube on ESEO, JY1-SAT, K2SAT, and ExseedSat. The launch window each day opens at 1832 UTC and extends for approximately 30 minutes. - Thanks to AMSAT News Service
