Thanks to the efforts of Patrick Stoddard WD9EWK/VA7EWK and other AMSAT members Hector Martinez CO6CBF was able to attend the AMSAT Symposium in Orlando, Florida.
On YouTube Patrick posted:
Hector Martinez CO6CBF gives his presentation “Working Satellites with a homebrew setup: Cuban style” at the 2012 AMSAT Space Symposium in Orlando, Florida, on 27 October 2012. Hector explained how his interested in communications related to space and satellites started with the SuitSat in 2006, and how he has had to be creative in building his satellite station. Hector also mentioned the newly-formed Cuban satellite group GROS (Grupo de Radioaficionados para Operaciones Satelitales).
Thanks to AMSAT for extending the invitation for Hector to attend the Symposium and give this presentation. Thanks also to the many hams who have helped in many ways – monetarily, and in other ways – to make Hector’s trip possible.
