At a ham radio luncheon last month James, WB2TGW, showed off his latest micro-controller project, which uses the Trinket board (priced around $7 US). This tiny computer, whose C programming environment and supporting software are open-source, is barely visible at the top of the proto-board. Its potential SETI applications include antenna control, A to D conversion, and digital signal processing.

I'm deeply saddened to report that our friend and fellow SETI League member Tony Monteiro, AA2TX, passed away last week at the age of 55. Vice President of Engineering for our sister organization AMSAT, Tony was, among many other things, a gifted antenna designer who helped me to develop the SETI Horn of Plenty antenna a dozen years ago. Here you can read a remembrance from AMSAT president Barry Baines, WD4ASW.

Last week at the Gurudev Observatory in Vadodara, India, Divyadarshan D.Purohit photographed masive sunspot AR11967 with a Sony Handycam. He writes: "AR11967 is big enough to engulf many Earths at a time. It has a 'delta-class' magnetic field that harbors energy for strong eruptions. As it is an Earth facing spot, any changes in the spot will directly effect the Earth."
