    LIVE from 8805 feet of elevation of the Big Bear (CA) amateur repeater this evening -
    we conducted our weekly "Tech Tuesday" net - with my ten-minute "Satellites" segment.
    We discussed today's deployments from the ISS - and what else is scheduled for the
    rest of the week from the Expedition 38 crew.


    We also leaned how to pronounce "LituanicaSAT-1" (grin) and learn where its home
    country is on the planet.


    We discussed the modes and frequencies for the four new ham satellites that astronaut
    Koichi Wakata KC5ZTA will be deploying - CubeSats that were launched from the Wallops
    Flight Facility, VA to the International Space Station (ISS) in the Cygnus freighter on
    January 9.


    We conduct this satellite session every Tuesday night at 7PM Pacific time. The Big Bear
    Amateur Radio Club club was established in 1975, and this "Tech Tuesday Net" is right
    in alignment with their stated mission to educate and stimulate interest in amateur radio.
    The BBARC is an affiliated club member of the American Radio Relay League, and its
    prestigious, high-level two meter repeater on 147.330 +.600 131.8 is heard from Mexico
    to Ventura, and from Catalina Island to Western Arizona.


    Tech Tuesday will be taking a two-week hiatus - come join us on Tuesday, March 4,
    2014 for another installment!
