Do you find SuitSat facinating? You should consider becoming an Amateur Radio operator! The original goal of SuitSat was to inspire school aged children so that they may become interested in space, science, and Amateur Radio but you don’t have to be a kid, just a kid at heart! Amateur Radio is a fun and rewarding hobby which will help you understand and experiment with new communications technologies, even satellites! “Ham Radio” is much more than morse code, it is new and exciting. Consider becoming a “Ham”! You can find out more about Amateur Radio at the Amateur Radio Relay League website. Amateur satellites are supported by AMSAT.
