Very 73,
wb4gcs at amsat.org

This year's CSVHFS meeting wound up tonite in San Antonio. Among the
many AMSAT folks in attendance were W4MO, W7LB, W5IU, W3XO, N4HY, K5SDR,
W5SXD, N6TX, KL7UW and K3IO. There were no satellite specific papers
presented this year, but the world of DSP and SDR was very much present.
K5SDR presented his new SDR5000 radio. KL7UW (with the SDR-IQ) and W5LUA
(with the Softrock-40) reported on the use of SDR receivers for various
VHF/UHF/Microwave tasks.

AMSAT highlights of the meeting came at Saturday Night's banquet. K3IO
accepted a financial contribution from CSVHFS for AMSAT. And then the
crowning glory: Bob McGwier, N4HY was presented the 2007 John Chambers
Memorial Award for technical achievement, recognizing his many SDR and
AMSAT activities. Bob joins previous AMSAT Chambers Award recipients

Congratulations to Bob -- 73 de Tom, K3IO
