Good afternoon!

It was a nice surprise to find our picture on this month's ARRL National
Park on the Air newsletter! I am humbled by the mention.

I'm also happy to see that some of our trips and portable operations are
helping to promote AMSAT and their goal of ”advancing the state of the art
in space science, space education, and space technology.”

Fernando, NP4JV
