The race is on…

AMSAT satellite Fox-1b is set to launch on November 10th, 2017. I am in the process of putting up my sat tower to listen for the first few passes of the new bird. The race is on not only for the launch, but to get the tower installed before the ground freezes! The trench to the tower is in and the cable is finally pulled through. Lots of work remains. I will post more photos and info over the next few weeks. Find out more about Fox-1b here…
