I just completed building the AMSAT Fox-1 Cardboard Model Satellite, Scale 1:1, it was my first attempt with cardboard modeling and I really enjoyed the effort.
Alan, WA4SCA, sent an e-mail via this board, announcing that ‘Through the dedicated work of Stefan Wagner, VE4NSA, AMSAT-NA will debut its new 1:1 scale cardboard model of the Fox-1 CubeSat at Hamvention 2013”. I asked Alan if I could send him the donation to AMSAT of $25, all proceeds will go to supporting the Fox Project, he sent the model to me and I finally put it together.
Stefan has designed an exceptionally detailed model that will be a perfect addition to any satellite operators shack, and an opportunity to show visitors what is being done by AMSAT today.
If you’re interested, you can go directly to the AMSAT store, http://store.amsat.org/catalog/ thank you for your support of AMSAT.

To anyone who was interested in a gps unit and you don't hear from me in
the next few hours, it's because all 17 are spoken for.
A pic of my recent trip to Skycraft.
Did get to visit a fellow in Sanford, His business, Avitar unlimited sells
to the general public by appointment and by way of ebay. Picked up some
headers for my project. If you're looking for quality test gear, dc to
daylight, this guy has it. Didn't spend too much time as he looked busy.

I was just wondering if the AO-40 LNBs connected to a Funcube dongle (and a bias tee for power) would recieve the carrier (is there one on DATV) from the ham TV test transmisisons?
If so, that should be a project that could show AOS/LOS , power levels etc, even if it's a black screen being sent: after all, it's RF.
maybe this has been thought about before? But I could use my converted blue lnb...
