It’s that time again! Time to elect your club officers and board of directors. If you cannot make it to the meeting, and want to vote by absentee ballot, please check out this post for more information.
In addition, this will be our Annual Home Brew night. Bring whatever you have that you had a hand in — Designing, Building, Modifying, Ruining — all will count. Put something in writing next to your entry to let us know about what you did. Don’t be embarassed — be proud. Bring it!
Our guest speaker this month will be our own Levi Maaia Ph.D – K6LCM. Levi will present an update from his attendance at the annual Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) International Summit held in October in Washington, DC. He will share updates about the repair status of the on-orbit radios aboard the station, new amateur radio technologies being developed for space and information on how you can make contact with the ISS using equipment you probably already have!
The ARISS program is the longest-running experiment aboard the ISS. In fact, astronauts have been using amateur radio to contact hams on Earth since the Shuttle program. ARISS provides learning opportunities by connecting students to astronauts aboard the ISS through a partnership between NASA, the American Radio Relay League(ARRL), and the Radio Amateur Satellite Corp. (AMSAT) The partnership also includes other amateur radio organizations and space agencies in Russia, Canada, Japan and Europe.
ARISS educational outreach programs inspire students in the U.S. and worldwide, to pursue interests and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through Amateur Radio. Levi’s PhD research at UCSB focused on STEM education in high school settings including student participation in ARISS. He is founding member of the ARISS-US Education Committee.
