The presentation on “satellite communications” is designed to provide a broad introduction into this method of radio communications. The content of the presentation is directed towards the novice radio enthusiast and will provide the information necessary to access the many amateur radio satellites that predictably circle the globe each day. The content of the presentation will include an overview of satellite classification, tracking and operating satellites, and what type of radio you need to make your first satellite contact.
