There are some amateur radio satellites in the sky above us. Every amateur radio operator can use these satellites for communication.

We will have an outdoor workshop with amateur radio transceiver and an antenna. Probably on top of Halle H next to the small dome.

The time of the workshop depends on the passing satellites. There aren't many usable satellites nowadays, but most of the remaining ones are circulating in a polar orbit. They will have a good pass with about 10 to 15 minutes usable time two times a day. The schedule of this workshop will be changed for a good passing. We will meet at the announced time at the Chaoswelle assembly for a short introduction and walk outdoors afterwards.
