Very interesting session with Conrad P. If TMRO is looking for a 2018 “theme”, look no further than the ongoing and emerging innovation of cube- nano- pico-sats. PicoSat in Perth was a good TMRO guest selection, and I wish them the best.

I love the “common sense “ innovation of PicoSat by their use of metal measuring tape for their antenna dipole, the onboard permanent magnetic placed for passive orientation over Australia, and their “down to earth” design.

Just a little bumpy near the start when Conrad was not actively included in the discussion, but all in all this was a good, compelling episode.

Consider following up with PicoSat/Conrad in 6 months to see what’s happening.

Good! Thank you to all TMRO staff.

Way to go, South Korea! I really hope their lovely neighbour to the North doesnt mess up with their plans.
