I am passing this on to the BBS. I know it is short notice
but wanted to get it out. Craig (KL4E) will be working out of
Anchorage on site and I will be at my home QTH approx 70
air miles south on the Kenai Peninsula. Hope to make contact
with you.... These classes are put on by the Anchorage Amateur
AMSAT Area Coordinator Alaska
As you can see from the message traffic below, we have been invited to
deliver a special satellite technology briefing and demonstration to a group of
Anchorage Police who have signed up for Amateur Radio training. The plan, as
shown in red below is to attempt to make contacts on at least two passes on
SO-50 during the class period on the evening of the 16th and to conduct
classroom training between the appearances of the bird. We also plan to check
into the Anchorage area ARES Net on both 2M voice and packet at 8 PM AST in the
midst of all the other activities!
If SO-50 is locally visible to you during the appropriate time frame, we
would like to ask you to please come up on this FM LEO and provide our new hams
with some contacts so that they'll gain some knowledge and appreciation of what
AMSAT and our ham radio satellites are all about.
Thank you so very much. Hope to hear you on the satellites really soon!
Best of 73s,
