John Heath G7HIA has written an article about amateur radio space communications for the October edition of the British Interplanetary Society magazine Spaceflight.

The Spaceflight description says:
"Radio amateurs have always been keen to exploit new means of communication and John Heath [G7HIA] provides a fascinating insight into how satellite technology has transformed the world of the radio ham soon after the launch of Sputnik right up to the present day."

The article covers the FUNcube satellite, ARISSat, GB4FUN and the FUNcube Dongle SDR.
