I will be conducting an ARRL Teachers Institute at Mississippi State
University from December 19-22.  The afternoon of Dec 20 (with the 21st as a
backup) I will be covering using space-borne systems in the classroom.  A
major part of that unit is demonstrating ham satellite contacts, and I could
use your help.  If you could give a listen for us on the AO27 pass that (I
think.I'll confirm once I am at the location and test things out) will go
over EM42 on Dec 20th at around 1435 EST and give a shout-out to the
teachers.  I will be using the call W1AW/5 for the pass.  If you'd like a
QSL for the contact, send an e-mail to me and I'll make sure you get one.


If you would like to see what else is covered during the Teachers Institute,

The satellite demonstrations are always an eye-opening experience for the
teachers, and the TI demonstrations would not be possible without your
support and patience.
