    How many 9 year-old Extra Class amateur radio operators have personally visited two satellites that are headed for outer space? We only know of one!

    Hope (KM4IPF) and the rest of the WK1DS crew visited with AMSAT's Fox-1 Cliff and Fox-1D satellites a couple of years ago as they were being prepared for the "shake and bake" testing in Orlando, Florida. We wanted to wait until just before launch to post the video, and Fox-1D is scheduled to launch in less than 36 hours!

    Enjoy the video!

    Congratulations Hope. You have more information in your head, from Ham Radio, and being Home Schooled, than many of the students I teach in College. KEEP LEARNING!
