2015 AMSAT Space Symposium Wrap-up

In October I attended the 2015 AMSAT Space Symposium in Dayton, Ohio. It was held at the downtown Crowne Plaza Hotel.  It was a well-attended event and the roster was packed with very technical presentation.  Great fellowship is one of the many reasons I attend these events.

Entrance to the Dayton Crowne Plaza from their parking garage.

Working satellites from AC0RA’s pickup truck. He’s holding his shortened Arrow.
We operated from the EN70/80 line, EM89, and EM79 before the Symposium.

N8HM working SO-50 from the rooftop of the parking garage.

Just a few of the operators who attending this year.

It was nice to meet WB8RJY and K8OE who were also in attendance!
And I almost forgot my friend and fellow Texan Glenn, AA5PK.
