The BIS events page says:
Dragon X has successfully deployed the KickSat CubeSat carrying 104 Sprites, a fleet of which were funded by the BIS and BIS members!
In preparation for the timed deployment of the Sprites from the CubeSat, the BIS KickSat team will meet at the BIS HQ with two goals:
• Ensure everyone with a ground station has a working installation of GNURadio
• Have some practice tracking other satellites
Present on the day will be radio experts, software experts, and a range of software defined radios and antenna.
Everyone is welcome to attend. Bring a laptop if you want help installing GNURadio.
