There will be an AMSAT table at the Hudsonville, MI,
hamfest on June 5th from 8am to 2pm. Doug KD8CAO and
John K8YSE will be on hand to discuss satellites; AMSAT
gear will be available for purchase. If you live in
West Michigan, please stop by and say hello.
There will be a satellite demo during the hamfest starting
with an AO-51 pass at 1203 UTC. We will try to work AO-7
at 1345z, SO-50 at 1555z, VO-52 at 1611z and HO-68 at 1713z.
We will be using a mobile setup with a TS2000, an Arrow UHF
7x7, 5 el Mosley on 2m, G5400b rotor with SatPC32 controlling
the rotor and radio. Hopefully we will have a good view of
the sky. We may be on some Friday evening passes during the
setup and pot-luck event. Check our position on www.aprs.fi
and search for K8YSE-8. We would appreciate contacts during
the demo, especially from other hamfests.
K8YSE/M will be operating on Friday June 4th en route to EN62 from
EN91. Hopefully there will be places to stop during passes on
the way. I will try to operate on the way back on Monday, June
7th as well. Check aprs.fi for our position.
