Both AMSAT-DL and AMSAT-UK announces Virtual Satellite Symposium for 2020.
Unfortunately, the AMSAT-DL Symposium planned for September 26 and 27, 2020 cannot take place this year in the usual manner.
Since the health of all of us is very important to us and the legal framework currently leaves no other option, we have decided not to hold a meeting on site in Bochum this year. We regret this very much, but the premises only allow an occupancy of less than 20 people.
Unfortunately, a “social” meeting with a dinner together is not possible, nor is a flea market and other activities, such as the QO-100 User Meeting, which will be held for the first time during the HAM Radio Fair in Friedrichshafen in 2019.
Instead, we will broadcast the symposium as an “online” meeting in DATV via the broadband transponder of QO-100 and on the Internet on the YouTube channel of AMSAT-DL (https://www.youtube.com/user/amsatdl) radiate.
AMSAT-UK Announces Colloquium 2020 October 11, 2020
There will not be an in-person AMSAT-UK International Space
Colloquium this year instead they will be holding an Online Event on
Sunday, October 11, 2020. This is the day after the RSGB’s Radio
Convention which is also an on-line event.
The AMSAT-UK Convention will run from 11:00am to approximately
5:00pm, with a break for lunch and several short breaks during the
day. (Times are British Summer Time, or UTC/GMT + 1.) Membership in
AMSAT-UK is not required to attend and the event is free of charge.
The event will be in the form of a Zoom Webinar. Register at
http://tinyurl.com/amsatukreg2020 and follow the instructions which
will arrive by email. No special software is installed since a
browser plug in is used by Zoom.
Those who are registered before the start of the Colloquium will be
entered for a number of free raffles which will take place during the
event. The event will be hosted by Graham Shirville, G3VZV and
Jim Heck, G3WGM and formally opened by our Chairman, Martin Sweeting,
G3YJO. For those registered it will be possible to pose questions to
the speakers during Q and A sessions. Informal on-line discussions
after the official close of the Colloquium, are also planned.
The Colloquium will be live streamed to the AMSAT-UK YouTube channel
