Last Name: Bosso
First Name: Christopher
Title: Communications Lead
Phone Number: 5857755763

Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Testing communications link with flight hardware will require free radiation on the proper frequencies.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  The operation is to perform ground testing of the communications link for a nanosatellite. The communications testing will involve an uplink and downlink from our flight radio to an Ettus Research USRP-based ground station 1.33 miles apart. This will simulate the ground to space radio environment. We will also perform radiation pattern measurements of our flight radio antenna.

Callsign: WP9XOK
Class of Station: FX MO
Nature of Service: Experimental

Requested Period of Operation
Operation Start Date: 12/05/2019
Operation End Date: 05/01/2020
