The club will supply some meats from Dickeys.

Not sure how many are coming, so I took a wild stab at the number of items to ask for. If the list fills up, I'll add more.

Please email CentralMSARA@gmail.com and let us know if you're coming so we can get a head count!

Working Amateur Radio Satellites

The former Editor of the AMSAT Journal, Russ Tillman K5NRK, and his long-time partner, Eddie Pettis N5JGK presented “Amateur Radio Satellites: An Introduction and Demo of AO-85” to a packed house at the February meeting of CMSARA. A tour de force of experience, Russ and Eddie taught attendees about the origins of how amateurs got satellites included on NASA missions, how NASA benefited by adopting ham radio technology, and how easy it is to get started working the “birds”. A demonstration in the parking lot was conducted with Eddie Pettis narrating the activities. At least one new ham committed to getting into the world of satellites during the program. Others may indeed follow! Our Vicksburg ARC neightbors were given a standing ovation at the end of the presentation.

The slides from the talk are available here. A slideshow of the activities is shown below followed by the video of the presentation.
