The only astronaut that I am aware of that will be present at Dayton in 2009 is Richard Garriott. He is the special guest speaker for the ARRL and AMSAT ( http://www.arrl.org/announce/nc/2009/dayton.html  and http://www.arrl.org/news/stories/2009/02/21/10660/?nc=1 ) so you might contact those organizations to see what his schedule is going to be like.

Subject: [sarex] help locating astronaut

Can anyone help me get in touch with Richard Garriott , Charles Simonyi ,
Mike Fincke or other astronauts that will be at the Dayton Hamvention in 3
weeks?  We would like to do an interview with them.

I made a very brief contact with Charles 2 days before they stopped
operation and came back.

We broadcast Live streaming video and audo of our 5 day trip to dayton. We
broadcast our 550 mile drive live starting on Wed May 13 and will be
broadcasting live from the fleamarket every day. It would be great if any of
the astronauts that may visit Dayton could come by and we do a short
interview. We are watched in over 150 countries and reach out to over
100,000 hams world wide.

We might even try to make a satellite contact and broadcast the attempt live
from the fleamarket.

Also we are open to any other ideas you may have which promote working
satellites, the ISS, or just ham radio.

Time is short so we need to move fast. I hope someone out there has the
Http://w5kub.com <http://w5kub.com/> is on 24 x 7 x365 days a year.  right
now we have recorded video on but will switch to live in a few weeks.

Thanks, Tom W5KUB
