 Six UN scholarships (PNST) are available for space engineeringDear Colleague
PNST is short for:
United Nations/Japan Long-term Fellowship Programme
"Post-graduate study on Nano-Satellite Technologies".
It is jointly administered by UNOOSA (United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs) and Kyutech (Kyushu Institute of Technology, in Japan) -- since 2013. Each year, six scholarships have been issued to students from non-space-faring nations. Three for masters degrees and three for Phd. The scholarship covers all expenses: tuition and living costs.
- must be passionate about space
- must have a bachelor's degree in some field of engineering or physics
- must be under age 35
- must be in the top 20 percent of your college class
- must be fluent in English
How to apply: Go to here to register and get all the details:
Follow directions and submit your application package before 19 Jan. 2020. Twenty persons will be invited to a Skype interview. Then six will be selected for admissions. If selected, you would start at Kyutech in October of 2020.

 CALLISTO status report/newsletter #84New station in Grotniki, Poland
On August 30, 2019 a new station has been installed and set into operation in Grotniki, Poland. The antenna is a simple G5RV: 20-10m, covering frequency range from 5 MHz up to 53 MHz. To cope with native frequency range of Callisto (45 MHz - 870) a heterodyne up-converter has been switched in-between antenna and Callisto.
Callisto application is a LINUX-version, running on 2nd hand LINUX-computer.
Data transfer is not yet automatic due to missing internetconnection. Internet access will be provide later this year via glass fibre.

 COSPAR Capacity-Building Workshop "Coronal and Interplanetary Shocks:
Analysis of Data from Space and Ground based Instruments"
Kodaikanal, India,January 6÷17, 2020
The main objective of the COSPAR Capacity-Building Workshops is to encourage the scientific use of space data by scientists in developing countries. The Workshops tap into the large number of extensive archives of data from past and current space missions and the online analysis software tools via the internet. Thus, a typical workshop aims to provide a highly practical training in the use of one or more of these data archives. … …
