Richard Garriott, W5KWQ, is a legendary video game programmer/designer
and ham radio operator who was the sixth private citizen to fly to the
International Space Station (ISS).
 
Like his father, Owen Garriott, W5LFL, who made history as the first
ham to communicate from space with radio amateurs during the STS-9
Space Shuttle mission, Richard was a ham radio pathfinder in his own
right through on-orbit experimentation, implementation of new capabil-
ities, extensive operations using many diverse operations modes, and
phenomenal educational outreach initiatives that inspired and trans-
formed the lives of tens of thousands students, worldwide.
 
Garriott was the most prolific ham radio operator to fly on a short
duration (<15 day) mission. During his 10 day stay on the ISS over 500
2-way voice QSOs were conducted, over a thousand SSTV images were down
linked. He communicated with tens of thousands of students in schools
around the world. Garriott also had numerous random chats with scouts
world-wide as part of the amateur radio Jamboree on the Air (JOTA).
 
Hamvention® Chairman Carl Rose, K8CPR, praised the winners, saying:
"On behalf of the Dayton Amateur Radio Association and Hamvention®
2009
it is my pleasure to congratulate this year's Award Winners. Their
outstanding contributions and the many years of service exemplify what
the amateur radio service is."
 
Richard will also be the keynote speaker at the AMSAT/TAPR Banquet
during Hamvention 2009. The Banquet will be on Friday evening,
15 May 2009. There is limited seating for the banquet, and tickets
may be purchased for $30 on-line at the AMSAT store or by contacting
Martha at the AMSAT office.
 
Richard will give a short presentation at the AMSAT Forum on Saturday
morning, and visit the AMSAT & ARRL booths.

ual placement on the International Space Station and subsequent release
into space.
 
Drew Glasbrener, KO4MA, AMSAT VP-Operations, "AMSAT Satellite
Operations Update" which will provide an overview of current satellite
operations as well as discuss future satellite opportunities currently
under consideration.
 
Will Marchant, KC6ROL, AMSAT VP-Human Space Flight, "A Ham Radio
Operator's View of ARISS".  He will outline several new initiatives
under development for Amateur Radio on the International Space Station
(ARISS) that will interest amateur radio operators.

BID: $ANS-102.
 
In a gesture of support for KiwiSAT the Auckland VHF Group (NZART
Branch 66) have donated $1000 for the purchase of the special Alu-
minium blocks from which the very structure of KiwiSAT will be milled.
For maximum stability, light weight and overall integrity, the frame
of our satellite will be milled from solid blocks of Aluminium.
 
Over the next few weeks KiwiSAT will finally start to take shape.
There is much work to be done but we now making "solid" progress.
 
Mike Jack of Stanier Engineering, a small specialist precision engin-
eering company based in Auckland, is now milling the main frame from
those solid blocks. The first tray is to hand and looking  great.
Strength and precision are two major factors as this first plate, the
foundation stone for the final structure, will carry the whole load
at launch.
 
We are most grateful to Mike for the use of his costly machinery and
for donating his very valuable time to this project.
 
Many more details and video of the milling process are available on
the KiwiSatweb site: http://kiwisat.org/index.html

Further Delays for  SumbandilaSat Launch
 
AMSAT News Service Bulletin 102.
>From AMSAT HQ SILVER SPRING, MD.
April 12, 2009
To All RADIO AMATEURS
BID: $ANS-102.
 
Launch date is now  only late July 2009
 
In early January the Department of Science and Technology signed
the SumbandilaSat launch contract with Roscosmos setting the
launch date at 25 March  2009. This date was later postponed till
May but the latest is a further postponement till late July. No
reasons have been given. However rumors have it that one of the
main payloads is delayed.
 
The fact that launch will now take place on a Soyuz launcher at
Baikonur as opposed to the previous Shtil from a submarine, en-
sured that a new Interface Control Document (ICD) had to be issued.
This meant that each element of the new ICD had to be check against
the previous one and an impact report on the differences had to be
compiled. Normally the base plate modifications, various types of
vibration, and some electrical issues from the basis of the changes
but the ICD is very comprehensive and contains all elements related
to on-site safety.
 
>From 25 August 2008 to the present time SunSpace, with permission
from the DST and under contract to Stellenbosch University, conducted
systems tests at ISSA to ensure that the satellite is launch-ready
after its been moth balled for more than two years. All the individual
systems have been declared functional and the only outstanding items
are some control system software updates caused by the change in orbit
parameter from South-North to North-South. The updates have been
tested, work and will be uploaded within the week. Final mission
scenario testing will then be carried out and is expected to be
successful.

The UK regulator, Ofcom, has published a document about the effects
of interference to UHF & SHF communications by Wind Farms.
 
The report, by ERA Technology Ltd and Aegis Systems Ltd, describes
a technical study in which a series of measurements were carried out
with regard to the presence of wind turbines near to wireless services.
The purpose of the study was to enhance understanding of the effects
of wind turbines near to wireless services
 
Some of their findings include:
 
*  A single turbine can produce measured fades as large as 3 dB for
   UHF scanning telemetry links and 2 dB for fixed links operating
   between 1.5 and 18 GHz, when the turbine is lying on the trans-
   mitter-receiver path.
 
*  A wind farm (with seventeen turbines) can produce measured fades
   as large as 10 to 15 dB for 1% of the time when the wind farm is
   lying on the transmitter-receiver path.

To switch the transmitter on, you need to send a CTCSS tone of 74.4
Hz. The order of operation is thus: (allow for Doppler as necessary):
1) Transmit on 145.850 MHz with a tone of 74.4 Hz to arm the 10 minute
   timer on board the spacecraft.
2) Now transmit on 145.850 MHz (FM Voice) using 67.0 Hz to PT the re-
   peater on and off within the 10 Minute window.
3) Sending the 74.4 tone again within the 10 minute window will reset
   the 10 minute timer.

SO-50 SAUDISAT-1C
Catalog number: 27607

To switch the transmitter on, you need to send a CTCSS tone of 74.4
Hz. The order of operation is thus: (allow for Doppler as necessary):
1) Transmit on 145.850 MHz with a tone of 74.4 Hz to arm the 10 minute
   timer on board the spacecraft.
2) Now transmit on 145.850 MHz (FM Voice) using 67.0 Hz to PT the re-
   peater on and off within the 10 Minute window.
3) Sending the 74.4 tone again within the 10 minute window will reset
   the 10 minute timer.
