Digital Satellite Ops reference

It has not been recently that I have posted anything particularly relevant to ham radio. I don’t find as much time lately to play with the radios either.
I do however, try to follow several special-interest groups that have internet email distribution lists. Overnight I received an email item from VE6MVP, referencing a research project I have not heard of : Shadow-beacon. In particular, Tony was looking for additional reference on digital operations via satellite. The Shadow-beacon project intends to utilize the APRS infrastructure that is already in place and operational on the International Space Station (as well all over the planet surface via the Internet).

With this in mind I thought I would create a simple page, that provides linkage to several resources that I use on a regular basis. There are surely lots of additional pages that are just as relevant, perhaps you will post some of your favorites in the comment section below. Aside from having equipment setup to operate APRS digital, we need to know what satellites are available, and when and where to listen. Hopefully these links will help answer some questions you may have.
