Hi all,

Dick Flagg (AH6NM), who has managed the Hawaii ARRIS gateway for ISS
Amateur Radio student contacts the past many years, received this email
from Bob Bruninga (WB4APR) looking for a packet radio station with
satellite experience.

The message has been sent thru multiple email lists since we first
passed it on to a few Oahu hams. Bob is looking for an Amateur with
knowledge of packet digital modes and experience with Amateur Radio
satellite communications.  Please read the information on the link
provided to get an understanding of the project. If you have dealt with
these technologies and are interested, Bob’s contact information is
provided on the psat2 page.

Will Marchant gave me your name.

for our Naval Academy satellite to launch next month.

We have a big hole in coverage over the pacific.  It is an exciting

See:  http://aprs.org/psat2.html

If you know of someone let us know.  No special fancy software, just the
ability to type something into a TNC if needed.

Bob Bruninga,

ARRL Pacific Section
