OT British Amateur Satellite to Launch soon

sbd sbd

Yes it’s off topic

A British Amateur satellite is to launch soon. It’s primarily an educational satellite, the idea being teachers can use it in class.

So if you have any contacts in a school or college, it might be good to get them involved. And possibly get some people interested in Ham Radio.

It will mode switch to an amateur transponder, this will be triggered by whether it is sunlit or not. The thought being schools/colleges etc generally only open during daylight hours.
