[amsat-bb] AMSAT UK Shop under new management

After several years of running the AMSAT-UK shop, Jim G3WGM has handed the
reins to Ciaran Morgan M0XTD. Ciaran obtained his full license in April
2008 and enjoyed organising a very successful ARISS contact between
Budbrooke School in Warwick, England and Richard Garriott K5KWQ whilst he
was onboard the International Space Station in October 2008.
The AMSAT-UK shop has been an important source of funds in the past and
Ciaran is revamping the current shop to help it to continue to make a
valuable contribution to the funds into the future. The shop has had a
policy of only stocking items that are difficult to obtain in the UK and,
initially, that policy will remain whilst Ciaran gets familiar with the
stock and identifies other possible options.
Suggestions are always welcome and a new email address
(amsat-uk-shop at amsat.org) has been setup. Please send the suggestions in
and keep checking the web site for updates.
Due to the level of sales of software, and compatibility issues with the
more recent Microsoft Operating Systems, it has been decided to stop selling
InstantTrack and QuickTrack. WiSP and SatPC32 licenses will continue to be
issued from the shop
Also, there are currently no books for sale - we are looking at this but
suggestions are always welcome.
On the hardware front, we have restocked with the ever popular LVB
motherboards and we also have a limited number of complete kits for the LVB
Tracker unit. Half of the new kits also include the AMSAT-NA enclosure with
compatible display unit! We are also investigating restocking the 2.4GHz
signal sources from G0MRF and the G7HIA 2.4GHz patch kits - please keep a
watch on the website for more details.
The AMSAT UK website can be accessed via http://www.uk.amsat.org/ - the shop
is accessed via a link on the left hand side of the web page.
