One of the club members where I'm scheduled to do a satellite presentation
has very little vision, but he is VERY interested in getting on the birds.

I don't know yet if he's going to be interested in just the FM birds, or
the linear ones as well. I haven't seen his shack yet, so not sure of what
equipment (HF/VHF/UHF) he might already have. He did mention he has some
Kenwood equipment; he implied that that company's radios are more
user-friendly for the visually impaired.

Is anyone on the BB aware of a current active satellite user who is vision
impaired whom I might call on for advice - for radio/PC software & hardware
-  when the time arises? I may drop a line to Handi-Hams too for their
