Re: new to amsat



If you could expand on your request to "control a robot from a satellite" with more specifics then you are likely to get better ideas and suggestions.
 
Some additional details like... Where would the command station and robot be located? How much time would you need to command the robot each day? What mode would the commands be sent in (digital, audio, FM, SSB...).
 
Hope your project goes well.

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
