A Beginners Guide To Ham Radio In Space

We have a few experts in the group but a lot of us are very curious about working satellites. This video is K6UDA's first adventure in to "working the birds". Enjoy !

From K6UDA - "The most entertaining look at amateur radio satellites ever. In my almost 10 years in the hobby, I've been intimidated and never tried to work satellites. That's about to change. Join me as I take the mystery out of Ham Radio Satellites. If I can do it, so can you."
