RSGB Amateur Radio Books used by Korean Satellite Pioneer

RSGB VHF-UHF Manual and Radio Communication Handbook used by Korean satellite pioneer Sungdong Park

The RSGB amateur radio books VHF-UHF Manual and the Radio Communication Handbook were referenced by Korean satellite pioneer Sungdong Park when he made the first Korean satellite KitSAT-OSCAR-23 in early 90’s.

On Wednesday, August 8, Sungdong Park, now CEO of the Satrec Initiative, donated these books to Hojun Song DS1SBO of  the Open Source Satellite Initiative OSSI. Hojun says it was a pleasure to hear about the stories from him.

The OSSI CubeSat, planned to launch in December, has a beacon in the 145 MHz band and a data communications transceiver in the 435 MHz band. This innovative satellite carries a 44 watt LED array to flash Morse Code messages to observers on Earth.
