Unfortunately, the AMSAT-DL Symposium planned for September 26th and 27th, 2020 cannot take place this year in the usual manner.
Since the health of everyone is very close to our hearts and the legal framework currently leaves no other option, we have decided not to hold a meeting on site in Bochum this year. We regret this very much, but the premises only allow an occupancy of less than 20 persons.
A "social" meeting with dinner is unfortunately not possible either, nor is a flea market and other activities, such as the QO-100 User Meeting, which happened for the first time during the HAM Radio Fair in Friedrichshafen in 2019.
Instead, we will broadcast the symposium as an "online" meeting in DATV via the broadband transponder of QO-100 and on the Internet on the YouTube channel of AMSAT-DL https://www.youtube.com/user/amsatdl.
Enclosed is the preliminary schedule for September 26th 2020 (all times in CEST=UTC+2):
Due to the international audience, most of the lectures will be held in English. The current schedule can be found on the AMSAT-DL homepage at https://amsat-dl.org.
We would like to invite you all, also on behalf of the AMSAT-DL board, to this year's AMSAT-DL online conference and the virtual QO-100 user meeting.
Jens DH6BB, Lenz DL8RDL, Florian DF2ET and Matthias DD1US
