On the Birds at the BRL Gathering

If your at the BRL Gathering on Saturday come and have a look and play with some satellite kit that a number of the RRC members have been making and using.

There are a couple different takes on the common theme and we plan to have a three or so outfits set up to play with… ALL welcome subject to available time and how many want to have a go of course.

Working the birds is quite rapid fire when there is a few on, everyone wants that little fix of available pass time. Combine that with Doppler Shift and tracking the thing it can get a bit interesting.

Saturday is the best day with 5 passes (2 on AO-92 and 3 on AO-91). A couple RRC members will be about to talk about their receptive setups.
