'[PIC] NASA Releases SuitSat-1 with PIC18 Microcont'

I think the two names of the Microchip engineers sound familiar.
I guess that Steve Bible should be Steven Bible, who wrote the
firmware for PICkit 2. It is Joseph Julicher who wrote the Mac
software for PICkit 1. The codes for PICkit 1 and PICkit 2 can
be downloaded here:

Wow. I never knew that thing used a PIC inside of it!

This is apparently because the transmitter went into an unplanned for
low-power mode very soon after "launch". This low power mode consumed
far less transmitter power but made the signal accessible only to
those with sensitive receivers or highish gain aerials - mainly radio
amateurs.  Nothing to do with the PIC, no doubt :-)

Nah - he used an LF part instead of an F part ;-) :-P

More to the point, maybe I can use this to justify putting COTS PICs in
satellite projects ...
