The Amateur Radio Mars Orbiter P5A and the High Earth Orbit (HEO) P3E will 
feature in presentations given by AMSAT-DL on Saturday July 26th, at the 
AMSAT-UK 'Satellite Weekend' which is open to all.

The Amsat P5-A will be the first spacecraft built by Radio Amateurs to go to 
the Red planet and the first ever private interplanetary spacecraft. It will 
use frequencies in the Amateur Satellite Service allocations at 2.4 and 10 

A video of P5-A 'With AMSAT P5-A to MARS' can be seen at

Pioneering spacecraft like these demonstrate the need for the both the 
Amateur Radio and Amateur Satellite Services to have access to Low Noise 
Floor allocations in the microwave spectrum so they can carry out weak 
signal experimentation.

The P3E presentation by Peter Guelzow DB2OS takes place at 11:30 am (1030 
GMT) on Saturday. He will followed by Achim Vollhardt DH2VA with the 
presentation on the Mars Orbiter P5A.

Thanks to the BATC both presentations will be streamed live to the web at 

New for 2008, it has been arranged with the University for "walkin" day 
visitors for £10 per day. For this, you do not get any meals, only 
attendance at lectures/beginners sessions. It does not entitle you to any 
other of the functions. There is no need to book, just turn up on the day. 
It would help if you could let us know in advance if you intend using this 
facility, please email g3wgm at amsat.org
