Subject: [amsat-bb] Another Great Tech Tuesday Net
LIVE from 8805 feet of elevation of the Big Bear (CA) amateur repeater this
evening - we conducted our weekly "Tech Tuesday" net - with my ten-minute
We discussed today's deployments from the ISS - and what else is scheduled
for the rest of the week from the Expedition 38 crew.
We also leaned how to pronounce "LituanicaSAT-1" (grin) and learn where its
home country is on the planet.
We discussed the modes and frequencies for the four new ham satellites that
astronaut Koichi Wakata KC5ZTA will be deploying - CubeSats that were
launched from the Wallops Flight Facility, VA to the International Space
Station (ISS) in the Cygnus freighter on January 9.
We conduct this satellite session every Tuesday night at 7PM Pacific time.
The Big Bear Amateur Radio Club club was established in 1975, and this "Tech
Tuesday Net" is right in alignment with their stated mission to educate and
stimulate interest in amateur radio.
The BBARC is an affiliated club member of the American Radio Relay League,
and its prestigious, high-level two meter repeater on 147.330 +.600 131.8 is
heard from Mexico to Ventura, and from Catalina Island to Western Arizona.
Tech Tuesday will be taking a two-week hiatus - come join us on Tuesday,
2014 for another installment!
