Hello all!!

The trip to Aguada de Pasajeros town was uneventful.  The location chosen
for the demonstrations was the town `s central park. 21 stations were worked
on three satellite passes and a lot of contacts were done on the HF bands
and 2m local repeaters.  A lot of people came to the presentation and some
asked about how begin in the amateur radio world.  

The most exciting part for the audience was when we heard the contact
between NA1SS form the ISS and K3CUJ from the National Electronics Museum,
Linthicum, MD. It was a great experience to everyone!!! 

Equipments used for this satellite operation is what I use usually when I am
portable. A mobile 2m FM radio with a homebrew 70cm/2m down converter
inside, with a strap around my neck. The 2m Kenwood TK-270 HT for Tx, a 12V
7AH battery into a backpack, a digital MP3 recorder, The HT in one hand and
the homebrew Arrow Antenna with a homebrew preamplifier in the other hand.

Thanks to everyone who worked me and said hello to the group. Right now,  I
have answered a lot of question about satellite and AMSAT on our 2m local
repeater. I am sure that we won some satellite enthusiasts more.

Hello all!

On Saturday September 1st, The Aguada de Pasajeros `s  Radio Club  will give
an Amateur Radio presentation from  the Central Park of the town. The Radio
Club will be operating on the HF bands and 2m local repeaters. I will be

to operate on the SO-50 and AO-27 passes from 12:00z to 20:00z and I will
try to encourage some Hams to the Microphone. Aguada town is in EL92 around
40 miles from Cienfuegos city.
