AMSAT-PH showcases Satellite Equipment

AMSAT Philippines, Inc. featured satellite communications equipment in celebration of the 87th anniversary of the Philippine Amateur Radio Association (PARA) on November 23, 2019, in Marikina City, Philippines.

The exhibit showcased Jharwin Barrozo’s (DV2JB) fully-automated home-brewed motorized satellite tracker, Anthony Urbano’s (DU1AU) portable satellite radio equipment setup, Servillano Boy Avila’s (DV4SMA) satellite go-box, and various types of satellite antenna by Ronald Navarro Pece (4I1AGI) and Jesus Ramises Mella (4G1BKZ). With a satellite communications equipment, one may contact anyone, anywhere in the Philippines and neighboring countries such as Japan, Malaysia, China, Korea, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and even Australia, using only a transmit power of 5W— an alternative mode of communication in emergency situations.

AMSAT Philippines, Inc. is a PARA-affiliated amateur radio group specializing in satellite communications with Ed Valdez (DU1EV) as its president.
