Cal Poly Trip: Cubesats and W6BHZ

Thanks to support from the electrical engineering department, club members Aidan Montare KB3UMD, Skylar Dannhoff KD9JPX and Kristina Collins KD8OXT were able to visit Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for the annual Cubesat Developers Workshop, as well as the first annual Cubesat training course.  While there, we also took the opportunity to visit W6BHZ, Cal Poly’s exceptionally active amateur radio club. A grand and very educational time was had by all.
