Welcome to AMSAT, I'm the NY State Area Coordinator for AMSAT, as a
volunteer I serve as AMSAT's regional ambassador. We serve in a variety
of roles, from making presentations at local meetings to manning booths and
conducting demonstrations at pubic schools, hamfests and conventions.
Additionally, we act as as local "Elmer's", providing technical and
operational help to hams in the area.
We do have AMSAT groups, in the form of mailing lists and local nets that
provide information about local activities, you can visit,
www.amsat.org/amsat-new/tools/maillist/maillist.php, to see the groups that
exist. In NY I have made presentations at Amateur Radio Clubs, to discuss
and learn about amateur satellites. There is an excellent net that you can
participate in, the Hudson Valley Satellite Net.
