getting started in Amateur satellite operation

My name is Cristian Marcu and I am an undergraduate Electrical 
Engineering student on the first Cubesat team at the University of 
California in Irvine.  I used to be an Amateur Radio operator while I 
lived In British Columbia, Canada, but I have not been active in a very 
long time.  Also, the other members of our team have no experience with 
Amateur Radio at all, or satellite communications.  Therefore, we are 
looking for a mentor who is an Amateur Radio operator and has 
experience with amateur satellites to help us and provide guidance for 
our project. We are basically looking for someone in the Orange County 
area who could come out and meet with us every once in a while and who 
would be available for us to contact for advice or with questions we 
may come up with.  We are currently in the process of putting together 
our base station and guidance from an experienced Ham would be crucial 
at this stage and the subsequent stage of building our satellite during 
the coming summer.  Any help or guidance would be very much
