Snoopy's Microtransat Contact List
Updated 1030 Thursday 27th August 2015 UK time
You probably reached here from Snoopy's
GPS Guided Trans-Atlantic Robot Boat page.
If not, click on the link to know more.
I set up this page because I get many emails from around the World about Snoopy's part in Microtransat,
and I will find it easier if I know if the person already gets emails from the list. Some of you may
find it useful in future too.
If you want to be added to this list, please email me on
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
with details to be added to
the list of names below.
- your full name: e.g. Robin Lovelock.
- your location: town, country. e.g. Sunninghill,UK.
- your email address. e.g. email@example.com OPTIONAL but good if you can include enough to find your emails.
- your team: OPTIONAL, if you have one. e.g. Team-Joker
- your web site: OPTIONAL, if you have one. e.g. www.gpss.co.uk
- other information: OPTIONAL. e.g. year of birth, occupation, postcode. No need for anything, if you prefer.
Please also include part of a recent Microtransat List Posting, so I know you are already on that List.
The order in the list may change, as "major players" are added. e.g. Teams who have made attempts.
Don't be shy about giving more than the minimum. e.g. Dick's entry in the list.
It seems that 1947 "was a very good year" :-)
Yves is at the top of the list, because he
suggested the "Microtransat Challenge" in 2004.
The idea was published in May 2004 in a french conference (a conference about education in electrical engineering ).
He then browed the internet looking for similar projects, and found Mark Neal and Roland Stelzer,
at the University of Aberwystwyth, in Wales, UK.
This is how it all started. Well Done Yves - we know who to blame, when speaking to our wives ! :-)

including a small picture, and paragraph of text, for those that do not have their own
web site or blog.

Microtransat Team Pages ...
The following is a very useful list of the Microtransat Teams, with links to their own web sites.
It is copied from the
Wiki Microtransat Team List.
I've corrected the links originally shown as: "
GPSSTeam Joker, Ascot, UK
Team-Joker in Ascot, United Kingdom:
This avoids the confusion of needing to click on "GPSS" to visit Snoopy's instead of John's page.
Also, Snoopy's link was to the old "GPSS.Force9" hosting, rather than the primary "gpss.co.uk" link.
I find these team pages useful when speaking with other team members, or seeing who may have visited
the "Snoopy" page.
