W4UVA and cubesats

Our sister club, W4UVA at the University of Virginia, is designing and building the ground station for the upcoming UVa cubesat mission.  See the article at https://news.virginia.edu/content/just-houston-engineering-students-begin-work-satellite-ground-station for more information.

The story has also been picked up the the Southgate Amateur Radio News (http://www.southgatearc.org/news/2017/march/university-of-virginia-satellite-project.htm) and the ARRL (http://www.arrl.org/news/virginia-engineering-students-tackle-satellite-ground-station-projects).  Good PR for local amateur radio activities!
