Good Afternoon,

I have been invited, WB2OQQ, to operate a portable satellite station on 
September 11th, using the call NW2C, at Historic Fort Totten, located in 
Bayside New York, only a few miles from ground zero.  Fort Totten was one of 
many placed used in recovery and healing during 911.

I will operate all FM satellite passes from 12 noon to 6pm EDT, 
1600, -2200z.  For those that make a confirmed satellite contact and wish to 
receive a Certificate of Confirmation, visit  http://www.nw2c.org/911.html, 
for all the details, NW2C will also be operating on the general bands, check 
clusters for frequency updates.

I look forward to demonstrating how our amateur satellites, can be utilized 
as another communications possibility in a crisis, let's put on a good show 
for the very special people that will be invited to this 911 event, thank 

73's Pete
