Re: 9 Cubesats selected for free ESA ride to space



Hi Domenico , you are absolutely right! the main problem is that young people involved in projects not even know what is an "hamradio" and what is an "ham spirit" (in Italy this is the situation), so 
whithout these conditions you can't produce something right for our community


think only this: the only satellites "ham-useful" have been produced outside university programs

I write this because I personally experienced what it means

Only AMSAT have the right spirit ( and experience..) to produce useful object

when a university has to create a satellite? turns to us...

For Italian University satellities is so

Hi David, G0MRF

It seem to me that while the Universities are becaming tennis players
we collect telemetry without to be involved in their experiments and
this is like to only pick up their balls and run with it.

The only difference is that each University  receive governement
contributions to build the satellite while we radioamateurs invest a lot
of personal money to build our own satellite stations.

Since the Radioamateur Community make a worldwide service to the
Universities my idea is to collect their TLM upon official donations to
be used to build our Orbiting  Satellites Carrying Amateur Radio i.e.
satellites with linear transponders to talk each other.

Is the Amateur Satellite Service becaming an endangered species ?

It will became an endangered species if P3-E and EAGLE will be not
placed in orbit as soon as possible but this requires our contributions
............or not ?

Do you like my TLM ?............Please donate !
