Thanks to Frank Bauer KA3HDO we were able to schedule a 15 minute interview
with Richard Garriott, W5KWQ, during our live web streaming broadcast of
the Dayton Hamvention. Richard has a very tight schedule but if all goes
well, we will have him on Saturday May 16 at 4:00pm Eastern time (2100 UTC)
for about 15 minutes.
Our video site will be going live Wednesday morning at 0800 Central and you
can watch us broadcast our 550 mile drive from Memphis, TN to Dayton, Ohio.
We will then broadcast the entire hamvention from the fleamarket. There is a
chat room on the site where hams around the world can chat with each other
about the webcast and if you have questions for Richard, we can try to ask
your questions during the interview.
If you cant attend the Hamvention in person you can attend virtually! we
will also be giving away a lot of free prizes to those participating through
our live web site.

thanks Tom, W5KUB
