Re: KiwiSat in New Zealand Newspaper



Trevor,

I know the website (http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/~jpsl/Kiwisat_progress5.htm)
isn't always up to date so the article may imply more recent progress but it
still looks like there's a lot to be done. I agree that it is great to see
Mode A/B linear LEO projects involving new National AMSAT organisations and
hopefully KiwiSat's success will inspire others.

Yes, I hope to attend all three days at this year's Colloquium so I look
forward to seeing you (all) then if not before. Maybe I'll even impress
Howard by having a 'proper callsign' by then :-)
