On Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at 7:00 PM, Clint Bradford, K6LCS, will present “How to Work Amateur Satellites with Your HT” (meeting is both in-person and online) at the New England Sci-Tech ARS (STARS) meeting.
You do not need 100W of transmit power nor expensive antenna arrays to work the FM amateur satellites! Many hams already have the necessary equipment to “work the birds.” This presentation will walk you through ALL the steps needed to successfully work several ham satellites. This presentation has been well-received by more than 100 clubs and conventions to which Clint has given it. Between the material presented, the handouts, the always-lively Q&A during and afterward, and the www.work-sat.com support Web site, STARS will be providing attendees complete information on this aspect of the amateur radio hobby.
Clint K6LCS has been a ham since 1994 and found his niche in the hobby working amateur satellites with minimal equipment and telling all about it! He has served as a liaison between NASA, the ARISS team, and schools coordinating amateur radio contacts between the International Space Station and students (and orchestrated a wildly successful ARISS contact). Audiences have never found his presentation slides “wordy” or dull and trivia questions are included throughout the session. For reference materials, Clint has created a support Web site at www.work-sat.com for all to use. The Web site has become a one-stop source for all the citations, equipment recommendations and software suggestions made in the presentation. Professionally, Clint was sales manager for ADI / Premier Communications / Pryme, worked for a Motorola commercial two-way dealer for a couple of years, and for Ham Radio Outlet for a couple more. He resides in Jurupa Valley, California, with his wife, Karen, and their rescued lab, Freja.
