AO-51 back from the dead…

January 15, 2008 | Amateur Radio | By: Mark VandeWettering

Yep, it’s back. Worked N6PAA and WA6FWF (although I totally misheard his call originally, glad I record these things). I was fighting antenna polarization early in the pass, the signals got very strong around max elevation. Signals were as quiet as I can ever remember hearing them.

Six Amateur Radio satellites to launch in March

January 15, 2008 | Amateur Radio | By: Mark VandeWettering

I mentioned Delfi-C3 a few weeks ago. It’s another amateur satellite that is tentatively scheduled to launch on March 7. The rocket will actually carry six individual amateur radio payloads. You can read about them all on the AMSAT UK website: AMSAT-UK – Six Amateur Radio satellites to launch in March
