Just a reminder for today ...

SB SAT @ AMSAT $ANS-352.02
ARRL Teachers Institute Plans Satellite Demo on December 20

AMSAT News Service Bulletin 352.02
December 18, 2011
BID: $ANS-352.02

Satellite operators are invited to listen for ARRL Education and 
Technology Program Director, Mark Spencer, WA8SME on the afternoon
pass of AO-27 (and possibly other satellites) on December 20 as he 
conducts an operating demonstration from the ARRL Teachers Institute 
at Mississippi State University. Satellite passes on December 21 are
planned as backup operating times.

Mark will be covering topics regarding using space-borne systems in 
the classroom. He says a major part of that unit is demonstrating ham 
satellite contacts. 

Mark will be using the call W1AW/5 for the pass.  If you'd like a QSL 
for the contact, send an e-mail to him (mspencer at arrl.org) and he will
make sure you get one.
