Youth, Amateur Radio and Outreach

Low cost satellite development

Here is an idea that can make our club more strategic about youth and Amateur Radio… a 16 year old designed a satellite transponder, has built an organization that is getting the bird launched un a few months, and an adafruit satellite transceiver is available for $20. See https://fossa.systems/. This is NOT ham radio, but it should be. This uses LoRA on 433 MHz. The tech has already been proven, as the world’s distance record for LoRa was set by high altitude balloon.

How do we get more involved in activities such as this??
