Satellites, JerryNet, & BBS's with KK4QAM Don

Don KK4QAM is building an automated satellite tracking system, from microcontroller boards and 3D printed parts, to the antennas used to transmit and receive with amateur satellites. He's one of the original JerryNet members and we talk a bit about those beginnings. Don also built a HF radio BBS system that spans the southeast part of the country. An active builder, Don has helped me in many of my own ham hardware and software projects.
