Re: new to amsat



My goal is to be able to control a robot from a satellite, I'm with a group
that is trying to compete in the lunar X prize, here's a video of our
earthbound test rover. Also what would be the best transmitter & receiver to
buy for this goal?

Yes.  You need to have a amateur radio license for the bands you wish to
work, specifically the "uplinks".  For example if you wanted to work some of
the LEO satellites like AO-51, SO-50, etc. you need at least a "technician"
class license.  Take a look at ARRL's information as to what bands you can
operate with which license (see:
http://www.arrl.org/FandES/field/regulations/bands.html).

Information about the amateur satellites in operation can be found at
www.amsat.org.

Next question?  :-)

Hi,

 This will be the first of probably 1000 questions. Do I need licenses to
work with amsat satellites?



Thanks, Brian
