Postponed to this weekend due to Hurricane Matthew, we will be operating
SATCOMs and HF at the Chesapeake heritage and Waterway Festival in
Chesapeake, VA. Operations will start as early as 0900 - 1600 EDT.
We are a small group mentoring youth in electronics and wireless
communications and sponsor to school amateur radio clubs in Chesapeake -
W4FOS and W4GBH.
Caution: If we do not have enough people to show up we could miss a pass if
we are busy speaking with parents and students.
K4AMG outfits the schools with complete HF stations, and 2 meter equipment.
Our Portable SATCOM Station is computerized dialed into a TS 2000, Yeasu AZL
rotors, Preamps, and M2 Beams.
We sponsor a STEM TREASURE HUNT where the winning class wins a price.
The students travels from vendor to vendor collecting answers to about
10 -15 questions they are giving. The class with the most correct answers
K4AMG is a public charity 501c3.
Maybe we will hear you on the linier birds.
