Fox-1 Engineering Unit Back on Test Bench

After a couple of weeks of tweaks and upgrades, the Fox-1 Engineering Unit is back on the test bench in AMSAT VP Engineering NØJY’s shack on July 22, 2014.

A full suite of tests are being performed including on the air use of the transponder. Fox-1 Team members participate in the testing via GoToMeeting and a PTZ IP camera in the NØJY shack, from their homes throughout the U.S.A.
