AMSAT — No Sunspots – How About Giving Satellites a Try?

This presentation will focus on the current fleet of satellites in orbit carrying amateur radio. We will discuss what is needed to work them. This can be as simple as an HT and an Arrow antenna, or as complex as a 2.4 GHz system for the ISS HamTV downlink. Additionally we will discuss some of the activities presently going on with satellite users including telemetry monitoring, grid expeditions and the VUCC Satellite award program.
