Newly Revised 2020 Digital Edition of “Getting Started with Amateur
Satellites” Now Available

The 2020 edition of AMSAT's "Getting Started with Amateur Satellites"
is now available on the AMSAT store. A perennial favorite, Getting
Started is updated every year with the latest amateur satellite infor-
mation, and is the premier primer of satellite operation.
This definitive reference is written for the new satellite operator,
but includes discussions for the experienced operator who wishes to
review the features of amateur satellite communications. The new
operator will be introduced to the basic concepts and terminology
unique to this mode. Additionally, there are many practical tips and
tricks to ensure making contacts, and to sound like an experienced
satellite operator in the process. The book is presented in DRM-free
PDF format, in full color, and covers all aspects of making your first
contacts on a ham radio satellite.

Joining the cover art for the first time this year is a depiction of
the next generation of AMSAT satellites - AMSAT's GOLF series of 3U

The digital download is available for $15 at
