16-year-old Ham Radio Satellite Builder

16-year-old radio amateur Julián Fernández EA4HCD was interviewed by the newspaper El Mundo Chronicle about his FossaSat-1 PocketQube satellite

...at the age of seven someone told him about the International Space Station and, since then, he has not stopped fantasizing about the idea of a voyage safe from gravity. "Unlike the children of previous generations who dreamed of being astronauts without knowing very well how to get it, I have grown up with all the information at my fingertips," he tells Crónica."

It is not designed to provide Wi-Fi hotspots .. but to try to democratize access to telecommunications in the environment of the internet of things. My prototype will take the internet to rural areas, many of them without coverage of any kind, so that monitoring data can be sent at no cost

Now Julián Fernández [EA4HCD], already as CEO of Fossa Systems, has just launched a crowdfunding campaign through GoFundMe with which he intends to finance his latest talent: a mini-satellite (the smallest in Spain and the third in the world) that will allow the Internet access throughout the world.
