True spirit of ham radio video

This video presents the true spirit of amateur radio. Whatever is presented in this video is real, and it shows activities that radio amateurs perform daily. Even the contact with the International Space Station!

The video presents the story of a young child who uses the Internet to discover how easy it is to build a transmitter, and talk to an astronaut on the International Space Station. He tries, he fails, he tries again, until his journey to discovery takes a rather unexpected turn. Because this is the magic of discovery, there is always something more to discover.

Watch it here

CSEO 2014The Cyprus Space Exploration Organization will be hosting a presentation titled:

"New Opportunities for Cyprus in Space Exploration"

The presentation will feature two main chapters. One of the speakers will concentrate on the future of space travel, while the other speaker will concentrate on Cube Sats. Clearly, as we all know, CubeSats mainly use ham radio for their communications back to earth (and beyond).

More specifically, the subject of CubeSats will be presented by Dr. Periklis Papadopoulos, who is the head of the team of young scientists who have constructed the first Greek cubesat, known as "Lambda Sat".

The event will take place at the Cyta main offices amphitheater on Wednesday, 17 December 2014, between 18:30-20:00.

All CARS members are welcome to attend.
