How to find articles on AMSAT-SM web

We have done some cleanup in the articles and posts on AMSAT-SM website. The “How to…”-articles and guidelines are now under three submenus:

Some articles can be found under more then one submenu, for example if it covers both “Beginners” and “SDR”.

In news categories you find news in different areas. Some of these posts can also be categorized as an article and also be found under “Articles and guides”.

We also use tags. Let’s say you read a post about IC-705. If you would like to read all posts about IC-705 then click on the tag at the bottom of the post.

Finally, you can of course search in all posts and articles.

AMSAT-SM site language changes to english

During the last years more and more visitors to the AMSAT-SM website are from outside Sweden. So, we have decided to change the site language from swedish to english. This means:

  • WordPress main site language is now english
  • The menus are now in english or a combination of english and swedish
  • If a page is only in swedish, you can see a comment in the menu link xxxx (Swe) . For example see the image above.
  • In most of the main pages, you will now see a description in both swedish and english
  • Most of the new “How to…” posts are written only in english
  • The longer posts about “Getting started in amateur satellites” will only be in swedish, because there are a lot of good sites in english about this subject, for example from AMSAT-NA and AMSAT-UK
