Dear AMSAT member,
To strengthen the relationship between Thai and Japanese amateur radio
operators representatives of the JAMSAT group of Japan have travelled to
Thailand to visit the satellite ground station HS0AJ and will operate from
the Ground Station of the Radio Amateur Society of Thailand under the
patronage of His Majesty the King (RAST).
On the occasion of the coronation of His Majesty King Vajiralongkorn
Bodindradebayavarangkun, HS10A (pronounced "Hotel Sierra-TEN-Alpha), as the
10th king to reign in the Chakri Dynasty, the National Broadcasting and
Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), Thailand's regulator, has authorized
the special callsign HS10KING (pronounced "Hotel Sierra-TEN-KING).
There will be an opportunity to communicate with HS10KING using the QO-100
amateur radio satellite and low earth orbit (LEO) satellites that windows
pass over Thailand by amateur radio stations which is similar to AMSAT
Germany's use of the special callsign DL50AMSAT using the QO-100 satellite.
RAST hence invites AMSAT amateur radio satellite operators to join in
contacting the HS10KING special event station from June 22, 2019 at 10.00
UTC (17.00 Thailand time) until June 23, 2019 at 10.00 UTC (17.00 Thailand
time) using SSB mode and DATV (333 - 250 KS) signals from the station
Please be informed and let others know of this opportunity.
Sincerely and with respect, de HS1JAN
Project Manager of JAISAT-1
