Visit to BT Madley Earth Station
The IET Satellite Network recently organised a visit to BT Madley Communications Centre in Hereford.  Here's a summary of the visit.

Change of Name for TPN
The TPN are pleased to announce that they have received approval from the IET Technical Networks Communities Committee to change their name to Satellite TPN. This is to reflect more accurately the scope of the TPN and to avoid  confusion with the other (SSA) acronyms in the Satellite/Space sector.

New Partnerships
The Satellite Network are now working collaboratively with SUN and during the summer sponsored a Downstream Applications Workshop
You can now watch the talks from that event via this playlist and view the slides and notes from the day here

The Network have also just signed a collaborative agreement with the British Interplanetary Society to sponsor their under/post graduate Short Presentations Competition and look forward to announcing details of the call for abstracts early next year.
