Hi All,


A while back, an article about a FT-817 Satellite Control Interface was
published in QST.  There were numerous requests for boards and kits on the
project.  There is a small quantity of the boards and kits available but the
procurement information didn't make it in the original article.


The raw boards are available for $20, and a kit with the board, parts and
programmed PIC is available for $35.  You can send an email to Debra Johnson
at ARRL HQ and order them from her (djohnson at arrl.org).  The proceeds from
this effort is going back to AMSAT and the Fox birds, so anything above and
beyond these amounts (which are basically at cost) will go into space as
part of Fox.


Questions?  Let me know mspencer at arrl.org.
