David Bowman G0MRF will be giving a presentation titled ‘A Beginners Guide to Amateur Satellites’ at the Sutton & Cheam Radio Society (SCRS) on Thursday, January 15 at 8 pm, visitors are welcome.

The SCRS newsletter says:

Last February, we had an excellent and well-attended talk by David Bowman – GØMRF on the topic of ‘The FUNcube Satellite Project’. The technology of satellite communication seems to have caught the interest of many of our members, but what has been missing at our meetings so far has been an illustrated talk on the basics of getting started.

David will be paying us a return visit on Thursday 15th January with a talk entitled ‘A Beginners Guide to Amateur Satellites’. This will cover the development of amateur satellite communications along with plenty of information on the necessary equipment to get started and the techniques employed.

Some amateur satellite operators have extremely sophisticated and no doubt expensive station set-ups,
however, it is possible to start off at a very basic level. All will be revealed at this meeting.

It’s always good to see a good turn-out of members and visitors at our meetings, so hopefully we can ‘kickoff’ 2015 with a packed clubroom. See you all on Thursday 15th.

John – GØBWV

The meeting will be held in the Vice Presidents’ Lounge, Sutton United Football Club, The Borough Sports Ground, Gander Green Lane, Sutton, Surrey, SM1 2EY at 7:30 pm for 8:00 pm.
