Headline Details: A 1U CubeSat mission. The Hiapo project is a unique platform being used to provide engaging meaningful hands-on STEM curriculum for Hawaii students K-12. Part of this curriculum involves obtaining data about solar flares solar particle events and the disturbances of the Earths magnetic field. They can also collect data on solar events with relation to the propagation of radio waves reflected or refracted back towards the Earth from the ionosphere. During the lifespan of this mission that data will be available for amateur operators to download directly from the satellite. We were awarded a no cost flight of the launch and a limited resources will not allow the development of an amateur digipeater however if the launch date slips we plan to work with resources at am sat to develop a digipeater. Proposing a UHF downlink using 9k6 FSK with AX25. Planning a Firefly launch from Vandenberg in July 2020 into a 300 km orbit with 137 degree inclination together with Serenity and Spinnaker 3 **A downlink on 437.225 MHz has been coordinated**
