The AMSAT Es'Hail-2 satellite was launched in November 2018 into a geostationary orbit. At the date of this talk by Dr Brian Flynn GM8BJF (23rd January 2019) it was not yet available for use as an Amateur Radio transponder while its exact position and operating parameters were being finalised, but it was possible to receive beacon transmissions from it. Brian described the set-up that he had already used to receive it, as a second mini-talk at this meeting, after his talk: "Modern Roll-Your-Own Printed Circuit Boards" which is reported  as a separate item (below) on this website.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This concluded Brian's two very interesting presentations, for which he was thanked by LRS Secretary, Mike Burgess MM0MLB.
