    With only twelve weeks of development, the RadioBro team was able to design and build the beta product.

    Release of the Small Spacecraft Radio

    MiniSatCom is sent to our first customers.

    With assembly and software completed, the first MiniSatCom products ship. These units were sent to overseas CubeSat teams just days after new regulations in EAR and ITAR changed to accommodate commercial communications satellite components being exported from the United States.

    RadioBro Corporation is formed

    Since completing a small spacecraft project at the local university, the three Becnel brothers decided to form RadioBro Corporation. The paperwork was filed on this day in 2014. The business plan was focused on providing small spacecraft electronics using NASA-grade production. The industry of CubeSats was new, and acquiring qualified electronics was not easy. So bringing the newly designed to traditional robotic assembly machines provided more consistency, higher reliability, and better customer pricing.

  • July 2010 - EAA Airventure

    RadioBro Name Created

    Oshkosh, WI

    Becnel Brothers RadioBro Name
    While on a personal trip to EAA Airventure, participants can learn how to build parts of aircraft. While building this wing, the brothers decided it was time to work together on their own company. The name RadioBro was chosen as it is easy to speak, remember, and is friendly to non-English speakers. In the weeks following the airshow, the brothers also designed the concept logo.
