Good Morning,

I have been invited, WB2OQQ, to operate a portable satellite station today
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 the enjoyment amateur operators have using 
the satellites and it's potential as another communications possibility in a 
crisis, so let's put on a good show
for the very special people that will be invited to this 911 event, thank 

73's Pete
