Hi Gang,

The Orlando Hamcation is just a week away, and AMSAT will be there in 
force. We have a forum scheduled Saturday from 1:45 to 3:15, and this 
year it is INSIDE! I expect
ARISSat-1 will be the main topic of discussion. We'll have live 
satellite demonstrations, ranging from simple handheld/portable 
operations, to fully automated systems. The ARISSat-1 engineering model 
will be on display, and on the air. I'll have a FUNcube Dongle Pro on 
display and in use. I'm also planning on having materials on hand for 
new members to build their own CJU 435 MHz antenna, for free as 
incentive to join and support AMSAT.

To make this all happen, we need your help. Orlando has become AMSAT's 
busiest hamfest behind Dayton, and we need current members to assist in 
the booth. If you can help answer questions and talk up the amateur 
satellite program, please consider putting in a few hours behind the 
table. Drop me an email at ko4ma at amsat.org, and let me know when you can 
come by and help out!

73, Drew KO4MA
