    We help Jerry when he needs us to. Prior to launching these birds when we are out if we know he has the bird to test prior to launch we chat back and forth with him through the satellite he is about to launch. We listen in quite regularly when AO-91 does its fly by. If you have an interest in satellites like we do you should listen in.

    And for the rest of us that aren't in the area of Granbury, Texas, Jerry has been known to have live video streams of some of the satellite testing on his workbench. You don't get to see that with many (most?) satellite projects. The video streams also provide Jerry ways to document his testing, before the satellites are deemed ready for launch, but it is fun to sit back and watch what's going on.
