    AMSAT-DL have announced this years Symposium on Saturday, September 26,
    will be streamed live on YouTube and most of the lectures will be in
    English to cater for an international audience.

    Matthias DD1US writes on the AMSAT Bulletin Board:

    Unfortunately, the AMSAT-DL Symposium planned for September 26th and 27th,
    2020 cannot take place this year in the usual manner.

    Since the health of everyone is very close to our hearts and the legal framework currently leaves no other option, we have decided not to hold a meeting on site in Bochum this year. We regret this very much, but the
    premises only allow an occupancy of less than 20 persons.

    A social meeting with dinner is unfortunately not possible either, nor is a flea market and other activities, such as the QO-100 User Meeting, which happened for the first time during the HAM Radio Fair in Friedrichshafen in 2019.

    Instead, we will broadcast the symposium as an online meeting in DATV via
    the broadband transponder of QO-100 and on the Internet on the YouTube
    channel of AMSAT-DL at https://www.youtube.com/user/amsatdl

    Enclosed is the preliminary schedule for September 26th 2020 (all times in CEST=UTC+2):
