spacelab receives essential support from the amateur radio community
The amateur radio community is essential to help receiving telemetry from small satellites transmissions. With the community help, and with the already installed structure at UFSC, it is possible to provide support for the missions operation.
Without our partner ARAF (Associação dos Radioamadores de Florinanópolis in Portuguese) missions like FloripaSat-1 would not be possible. Their support in tests and during the mission operation are fundamental for the success.
Radio knowledge and expertise is fundamental for successful missions in SpaceLab. If you have some experience with radio communication, participates in a group of amateur radio or want to learn more about this field, please get in touch by clicking here.
