YL1VA is club station of Ventspils University College (Ventspils Augstskola in Latvian)
One of main goals of our club station is to provide students with oppurtunity comunicate with real orbiting satellites and encourage�student interest of radio/satellite telecommunications and technologies. We have all necessary equipment to communicate with LEO satellites and operate as satellite base station, which will also be needed in near future for servicing Latvian first satellite.
Of course, since we got our operating license, students can learn how to use radio station equipment, to practice their HAM radio operator skills on both HF and VHF/UHF bands, make first QSOs, take part in contests and to go in this great hobby.
