Abstract : The Space Systems Academic Group's (SSAG's) Amateur Radio Station User's Guide and an embedded user-friendly menu interaction system comprise the scope and purpose of this thesis. The User's Guide was developed in an effort to identify the best procedures to use when accessing amateur radio frequencies. Although the Amateur Radio Station is capable of voice and continuous wave (CW) communications, these areas are not addressed within the context of this manual. This manual is dedicated to the processes involved in accessing digital satellites containing amateur payloads. Most of the information found in this user's manual was obtained from existing sources. This manual attempts to organize that information, and demonstrate how it applies specifically to the SSAG Amateur Radio Station.
