Subject: [amsat-bb] Radio Amateurs supporting a mission in space (video)

Dear all,

Very often I find it difficult to explain to 'outsiders' what HAM radio is
all about.

Therefore I have released a short video on YouTube about the recent ANDE-2
experiments and how radio amateurs world-wide contributed to this mission.

When I was young I watched the first Space Shuttle flight on TV. A far away,
fantastic scientific event. Many years later we as radio amateurs are given
opportunities to engage directly in space-experiments. It's a thrill !

Featured in the video are the launch and deploy from STS-127, as well as
reception and decoding of the satellite's radio signals received from space.

For highest quality ensure you enable HD (it does slow-down the download a
bit though)

Best regards,
Henk, PA3GUO
