I AM LOOKING FOR AN AMSAT MEMBER to
help set up and operate a ground station
at the AMSAT Lab in Pocomoke City, Md. The
task is to receive simple telemetry and to
participate in the radio net covering one
or both high-altitude balloon missions
carrying Amateur Radio on Tuesday, July 24
and on Wednesday, July 25.
For lots of background information about the
SimSat-3A and SimSat-3B flights please go to
The SimSat Announcement Page at:
See also the complete Task List for operators
to participate either from home or at our
launch site on the eastern shore.
What do you think?
A ground station at the AMSAT Lab supporting
a SimSat flight would provide good, positive
visibility to AMSAT.
Please give me a call and I'd be glad to
explain what can be done at the lab, however
simple. The event will be quite educational.
Could be quite a lot of fun too!
