Subject:  Satellite Communications the easy way
It's time for Amateur Radio Roundtable, a live weekly amateur radio webcast and simulcasted shortwave program every Tuesday night at 8 PM CDT (0100 UTC Wednesday).  The show can viewed at W5KUB.com (http://w5kub.us10.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0d5cdae05233f79e11025a75d&id=77d5fc3d40&e=3ac2e90269)  or heard on shortwave radio station, WTWW on 5085 KHz.  Tom Medlin, W5KUB, is joined by co-host Ted Randall, WB8PUM, from the QSO Radio Show.  The show covers a wide range of topics for ham radio operators, shortwave listeners, and electronic hobbyists; including balloon launches, Satellite, go-kits, emergency communications, SDR, digital modes, DXing, home brewing, and more.

During last week's show, there was a major U.S. internet routing problem and outage which affected our show. Due to this outage we were unable to proceed our show and it has been rescheduled for Tuesday, July 6th.

This week’s guest will be Clint Bradford, K6LCS. Clint lives in Southern California, and, by last count, has performed his "How to Work Amateur Radio Satellites With Your HT" presentation almost 80 times at conventions and clubs across the United States.  To learn working the "birds" with just a simple HT, tune in Tuesday night's show.  Clint will also discuss other tools needed; such as, free tracking software, how to home-brew a simple Yagi antenna for more punch in the signal, and the simple protocol used when making these fun and interesting contacts.  In addition to learning about the satellites, the same equipment is used to contact the International Space Station.

Clint also coordinated a school contact with the International Space Station  - enabling students to interview an astronaut as the International Space Station streaked overhead.   Clint's websites are work-sat.com (http://w5kub.us10.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0d5cdae05233f79e11025a75d&id=ab4afb687f&e=3ac2e90269)  and K6LCS.com (http://w5kub.us10.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=0d5cdae05233f79e11025a75d&id=a790f62dfd&e=3ac2e90269)
