NOTE 1: "Tech" refers to "technical" topics ... not to the Technician
amateur radio license class.

NOTE 2: If you are not interested in advancing the cause of promoting
amateur radio satellites, then please stop reading NOW.

LIVE from 8805 feet of elevation of the Big Bear (CA) amateur repeater this
evening - we conducted our weekly "Tech Tuesday" net.

We would like to thank NASA for the ISS fly-over at 7:02PM PST - allowing us
to open the net, then walk outside for a magnificent, 45+ degree pass of the

Those listening this evening learned about this week's tentative commercial
and amateur satellite deployments ... we discussed the modes and frequencies
for the four new ham satellites that astronaut Koichi Wakata KC5ZTA will be
deploying ... and about the Web sites for live video of CubeSat deployments
and further information.

And all were also invited to attend the Palm Springs Desert RATS / Palm
Springs DX Club HamFest that is happening Saturday, March 15, 2014. These
clubs have a history of organizing incredible one-day hamfests - including
ham radio history, licensing, major vendors, inexpensive coffee (most
important to hams), and demonstrations. And FREE parking (quite
extraordinary in Palm Springs for such an event!)

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.

In the Southern CA region? Or have EchoLink capability (repeater K6BB)? Then
join us next Tuesday night at 7PM Pacific. We always find an article or two
in the current QST magazine to discuss, and are always open for
"technical-related" questions from YOU!
