Thank you. ---

Does anyone going to Dayton have a  Raspberry Pi with the OUTERNET
satellite feed on it?

Outernet is a satellite downlink receivable anywhere in the world* from 3
GEO sateliltes that carries an APRS and an AMSAT channel on it.  I wanted
to demo it at Dayton, but I just checked mine and apparently the cover blew

All it is, is a RaspberryPi, an SDR dongle and a patch antenna and that
becomes a WiFi hot spot that can serve the live data to anyone in range
with any WiFi device.

I want to talk about it during the APRS Forum on Friday.  Need something to
