The Ohio State ARRL Convention will be held Saturday August 4, 2012 in
conjunction with Voice of Aladdin's Columbus Hamfest.
This event, the first convention for the Ohio Section, is beginning to
shape into a rather big event. Already committed is Guest Speaker, ARRL
President Kay Craigie, N3KN, and there has even been rumblings of a Wouff
Hong ceremony. As a member of the Ohio Section Cabinet, I am also on the
Convention planning committee.

Regardless, I am looking for volunteers to help mount an AMSAT presence for
the event. What I have in mind is a table inside and a Satellite Demo
outside, similar to what we do at Dayton, but I am open to any and all
suggestions. I am also looking for anyone who might have a good satellite
related program that would run 30-45 minutes. It may also be possible to
have an Ohio AMSAT gathering during the event. I think this would be a good
exposure for AMSAT as well as a chance for Ohio members to get to know each

I you are interested in helping out or would like to propose an forum talk
please CONTACT ME OFFLINE at kc8yld at amsat.org.
