Our Camp Leader, David VK3GP, introduced participants at our recent Foundation Training Course to the world of amateur radio satellites. He spoke to a couple of operators across south-eastern Australia and New Zealand via satellite AO-91 as it passed overhead. Conditions permitting, we aim to demonstrate this at JOTA too!
