LIVE from 8805 feet of elevation of the Big Bear (CA) amateur repeater this evening -
we conducted our weekly "Tech Tuesday" net - with my ten-minute "Satellites" segment.
We discussed today's deployments from the ISS - and what else is scheduled for the
rest of the week from the Expedition 38 crew.

We also leaned how to pronounce "LituanicaSAT-1" (grin) and learn where its home
country is on the planet.

We discussed the modes and frequencies for the four new ham satellites that astronaut
Koichi Wakata KC5ZTA will be deploying - CubeSats that were launched from the Wallops
Flight Facility, VA to the International Space Station (ISS) in the Cygnus freighter on
January 9.

We conduct this satellite session every Tuesday night at 7PM Pacific time. The Big Bear
Amateur Radio Club club was established in 1975, and this "Tech Tuesday Net" is right
in alignment with their stated mission to educate and stimulate interest in amateur radio.
The BBARC is an affiliated club member of the American Radio Relay League, and its
prestigious, high-level two meter repeater on 147.330 +.600 131.8 is heard from Mexico
to Ventura, and from Catalina Island to Western Arizona.

Tech Tuesday will be taking a two-week hiatus - come join us on Tuesday, March 4,
2014 for another installment!

LIVE from 8805 feet of elevation of the Big Bear (CA) amateur repeater this evening -
we conducted our weekly "Tech Tuesday" net.

We would like to thank NASA for the ISS fly-over at 7:02PM PST - allowing us to open the
net, then walk outside for a magnificent, 45+ degree pass of the ISS.

Those listening this evening learned about this week's tentative commercial and amateur
satellite deployments ... we discussed the modes and frequencies for the four new ham
satellites that astronaut Koichi Wakata KC5ZTA will be deploying ... and about the Web sites
for live video of CubeSat deployments and further information.

And all were also invited to attend the Palm Springs Desert RATS / Palm Springs DX Club
HamFest that is happening Saturday, March 15, 2014. These clubs have a history of
organizing incredible one-day hamfests - including ham radio history, licensing, major
vendors, inexpensive coffee (most important to hams), and demonstrations. And FREE parking
(quite extraordinary in Palm Springs for such an event!)

We conduct this satellite session every Tuesday night at 7PM Pacific time. The Big Bear
Amateur Radio Club club was established in 1975, and this "Tech Tuesday Net" is right
in alignment with their stated mission to educate and stimulate interest in amateur radio.
The BBARC is an affiliated club member of the American Radio Relay League, and its
prestigious, high-level two meter repeater on 147.330 +.600 131.8 is heard from Mexico
to Ventura, and from Catalina Island to Western Arizona.

In the Southern CA region? Or have EchoLink capability (repeater K6BB)? Then join us
next Tuesday night at 7PM Pacific. We always find an article or two in the current QST
magazine to discuss, and are always open for "technical-related" questions from YOU!
