Amateur Satellites

I have been playing with AMSATS on and off for a while but have recently refreshed interest along with many others with the arrival of LEO's (low earth orbiting sats) like RS12/13 and UO-14 . These satellites require basic setups and minimal outlay. Most amateur operators would have the gear allready at hand. Hence they are very popular satellites and very busy at times. They seem to me to have a good influence on that part of the hobby. Getting amateurs on satellites who would otherwise percieve it as too hard or too expensive. Have a look at the small page I have constructed on Amateur Satellites and information including some real audio recordings off the sats . Link to Amateur Satellite page.

PIC Microprocessors
These little 16 bit micro's have an amazing potential and are very exiting . They can be
programmed via a serial port and also erased for reprogramming ...
