How many satellite ops have D STAR radios ? Join us tomorrow night on
REF 60B at 0100 utc
I've seen AMSAT net announcement messages for years, and NEVER
understood them. The messages never specify a terrestrial frequency or
an amateur satellite. This leads me to the conclusion that the AMSAT
net doesn't use ham radio as the communications medium.
What communications medium is used to conduct the AMSAT net?
Is it on a 2-way channel on a commercial satellite?
Is it on the Internet?
What is REF 60B?
If the AMSAT net doesn't use ham radio, why not?
