SAREX Reflector to Close on November 1

10/26/2015

AMSAT Vice President for Human Spaceflight Frank Bauer, KA3HDO, has announced that the SAREX (Space Amateur Radio EXperiment) reflector will close on November 1, and its functions folded into the AMSAT-BB list.

As Bauer explained, at one time operations from the space shuttle and the International Space Station were considered sufficiently different from other satellite operations to need separate forums for their respective interest communities. More recently, changes in human spaceflight operations, a new generation of satellites, and the interests of the general AMSAT community have removed the distinction.

Those subscribed to both SAREX and AMSAT-BB will not need to take any action. The SAREX archives will continue to be available for historical purposes. Subscribe to AMSAT-BB to continue receiving human spaceflight announcements. Existing SAREX subscription will not be automatically carried over. — Thanks to AMSAT News Service
