I have had the honor of appearing on Ham Nation with Gordon West and Dr. Bob Heil several times. Episode 46 covered our successful ARISS project in Jurupa Valley, CA. Episode 11 - although technically, well, weird, covers the satellite basics, and Bob playing, "Happy Birthday," to me on his organ. Episode 361 was a quick satellite overview.
