AMSAT-NA has two opportunities available for  Windows  programmers.
We have two projects that are in need of talent, both in support of
Operations. This is a great chance to support AMSAT and amateur
satellites in a real and tangible way

The first project involves writing a GUI XP compatible program to read mixed
ASCII and binary telemetry files, extract, reformat, and display the data.
Some basic statistics and producing a .csv file are also highly desireable
features. Console versions of these programs already exist created in Visual
C++ 2005 Studio Express. Support for the finished product will be limited to
a few internal users in support of AO-51.

The second project involves developing a GUI XP compatible program around
some prexisting AX.25 and soundcard code for a UI satellite communications
program. Ease of installation and use are high on the priority list for this
project, and support will be required for widespread use. A team approach
may be best regarding support (read this as "bring a team with you").  This
will be done in support of an effort to increase usage and visibility of the
several Microsats currently in orbit and functional.

Please send a e-mail to ko4ma at amsat.org indicating your willingness to help,
and I'll be happy to explain further.

AMSAT-NA VP Operations
