Hello fellow AMSAT Members,

YOU ARE INVITED to help staff the 
AMSAT booth at the local hamfest in 
Timonium, Md. with us this Saturday!  

So far, it is just Ken Perko WA3WHE and me 
in the booth.  We have a premium 1.5-hour 
or 2-hour slot in the schedule for you to 
slip in and provide a sliver of relief for 
one of us.  Just call or write me what time 
you'd like to volunteer with us.  All the 
info about the show is given below and 
at the GBHC Web site link shown.  

There is room to set up a demo or two as 
well.  Would you like to show off part of 
your portable satellite ground station and 
laptop software in action?  Please do!  

Otherwise just swing by to chat.  You may 
purchase a ticket to the hamfest on the 
morning of, and find us in the Cow Palace 
like last year.  

This coming Saturday ought to be another 
fine day for Amateur Radio and satellites!
