Peter Goodhall 2E0SQL, well known for satellite operating from remote Scottish Islands and the Channel Islands, gave a presentation titled ‘Satellite Operations in the Field’ to the 2016 AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium.
The talk explores experience gained from 5 years of satellite operations from Scottish Islands (Isle of Arran, Mull & Lewis) and the Channel Islands (Guernsey), looking at equipment from using simple handheld equipment to fully automated stations, techniques and issues experienced along the way.
Thanks to volunteers from the British Amateur Television Club (BATC) the presentation has been made available on YouTube.
