All potential volunteers to the AMSAT Pocomoke Lab,
We welcome you on these upcoming Saturdays (9a-5p):
Jan 12 (tomorrow)
Jan 19
Jan 26
Feb 2

My business travel was delayed to early Feb or later. More dates later.

Last week we had Bob McGwier, the AMSAT VP of Engineering, from New Jersey.
He will probably join us every other Saturday for a little while. It's great
to have him. We also had our regular volunteers: JC, Ray & Kaitlyn. And
special volunteers (our secretary's kids): Elissa, Bradley and Jacob. We
continued on cleanroom wall joints, doors, Eagle discussions, and ham gear.

January will probably close the cleanroom activities. February will be the
tower and all the RF. We've started to really think about how to implement
U, V, L, S and HF. In another week we'll have available a more final ground
station sketch if anyone is interested in seeing "The Plan".

After the tower, we will begin work on the engineering unit (practice copy)
of the structure for the AMSAT Eagle amateur radio satellite. We want
certain parts of it complete in time for the Dayton Hamvention in May. It's
about time we built something other than facilities!

I haven't uploaded any pics lately, so I will this month. The link is:
