It is now the second day of the ITU Symposium and Workshop on small
satellite regulation and communication systems (Prague, Czech
Republic, 2-4 March 2015).

The symposium is streamed live at:


Apparently this will only work with Windows Media Player.
Todays lectures just started with SSTL.

There is a presentation at ~17:50 local time:

"Es’hail-2 Satellite AMSAT Payload"

The presentation schedule may be found here:


This presentation covers also frequencies, polarisation data and
block diagrams of the implementation.

Maybe food for thought stateside, how something similar could be
negotiated with the NA space industry ? With some clever planning,
maybe even some continent hopping could be implemented ;-)
