Conducting another Radio Merit Badge class at the National Scouting Museum
in Irving, Texas, EM12, this Saturday the 11th. With operations as K2BSA/5.
In addition to local VHF/UHF and HF stations for Scouts to make contacts for
the badge requirement, we will again conduct satellite ops as well. Our
pass times this outing will be around 2000Z with both SO-50 and AO-27 active
at the same time and somewhat similar sky positions. SO-50 has a 67 Hz tone
and AO-27 does not so I will be turning off the tone when 27 comes up.
Hopefully the dueling satellites will not be as big a problem as I fear. Oh
well give K2BSA/5 a call and get some Scouts excited about Ham Radio and
Satellites as well.
By the way, check out this site page, http://www.k2bsa.net/on-the-air/
published by Jim Wilson, K5ND. Jim is the custodian of the K2BSA call, and
works for the BSA National HQ next door to the Museum building. Our
previous satellite operations, including the ARRL Kids Day ops on January 8
figure prominently on his newly minted site. Check out the recording
provided by Rick, WA4NVM for that day and K8YSE's from back in September.
Thanks guys for the contributions. I sent out QSL cards from the January
8th event so hopefully all of you we worked have gotten them by now.
See you on the birds.
