I will be hosting a "Yuri's Night" party at my house on April 12 ... How about "meeting" also on the AMSAT Conference on EchoLink for the event?
We can keep the "politics" of the delayed ARISSat-1 deployment out of this ... and have a fun session. (I mean, it's going to be a celebration whether we get involved or not ... )
Anyone else organizing anything on the 'Net?
The Web site cited in this weekend's AMSAT News looks like fun ...
Roscosmos has announced that ARISSat-1, still inside the ISS will be turned on using an external antenna on Yuri's Night, April 12, 2011 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's first manned space flight. AMSAT will support this event and issue certificates to those stations reporting reception of the ARISSat-1 signals. Yuri's Night is a global event with more information available online at: http://yurisnight.net/
