Urgent Call: All Power To The ISS!

TLDR: If you are capable of transmitting up to the ISS with > 30dBW EIRP on 70cm, the experiment needs your help.


PSA: Due to the shutdown of the hackint matrix bridge our primary communication channel has been migrated to freenode.

IRC: on irc.freenode.net

Matrix: :matrix.org, try matrix.to/#/!LcdZSGllxqeQISyXU

Some interesting events inside "OIO workshop domo" (Open Infrastructure Orbit tent) if you are interested in space comms:

Day 2 2000-2100 CET: @SatNOGS meeting (AOS)
Day 3 1400-1600 CET: @SatNOGS meeting (TCA)
Day 4 tbd: optional @SatNOGS meeting (LOS)

The Deep Space uLounge©®™ at !@C3SpaceCentre now features the only sofa at with a view from 400km altitude.

Also if you want to build your own station, but you don't have the budget/time/skills/space for the full rotor setup:
Come talk to me at the !@C3SpaceCentre assembly during the . I'll bring a rotorless station that can be build for less than 100€ to the congress.

It has just been brought to our attention that hackint has suspended the matrix bridging.
Unfortunately this means that our matrix channel :irc.hackint.org is no longer operational.

Ground control is currently engineering a workaround to restore full operational capabilities.

We just started planning the assembly for the .

Like last year's CSOC the assembly would be intended as place to hang out (and to show of projects) for everyone interested in space exploration, space travel, satellites, cubesats, satellite tracking, diy astronomy, amateur rocketry ... you name it.

See last years website c3space.de for examples.

If you are interested, add yourself to the attendee list in our etherpad: pads.ccc.de/MCXiI1sPhR

Nun werden auch hier die unendlichen Weiten zerforscht und die letzte Grenze gehackt.
