AMSAT will have a booth at the Tampabay Hamfest coming up on December
4th in Palmetto, Florida. We also will be doing 90 minutes of
presentations on satellites and ARISS during a forum on Saturday. Please
come by to pick up the latest AMSAT gear, learn about ARISSat-1, FOX,
and other projects, make a donation, or join or renew your AMSAT membership.
This year I am going to try something new. For each donation of $25 or
more, or each membership or renewal, I will personally provide the parts
and help assembling an antenna for operating the satellites. We will be
building a version of the CJU antenna in the booth, which is a small but
very effective antenna to use with an HT to copy the Mode J satellites.
Using the CJU and an HT, and the 2m radio in your car, the Mode J
satellites are easy to use. Email me ahead of time for details or to
RSVP for this offer.
Please forward to any interested parties or lists.
73, Drew KO4MA
