Yes Dee good  point, now that  a station can make FD points on all the 
Linear Satellite's it might encourage Clubs to increase their AMSAT 
visability and run a complete station.  It will be another opportunity to 
help DARA add more matching funds towards our goal of "Getting Back into 

I had a fantastic Hamfest hosted by LIMARC, we had a very visable location, 
next to the well designed Great South Bay ARC's communications trailer, 
which brought more visitors to our AMSAT Booth.   I want to thank K2TV, 
AB2ZI, W2JGH, K2IZ, W2HCB and KA2CAQ, all graduates of my satellite classes 
who helped with the non-stop visitors to our booth.

I also want to thank, Richie, K2KNB, who headed the LIMARC Hamfest  and the 
other volunteers for making AMSAT so welcome, you always run a big succesful 
event.   I will be making a satellite presentation to the club in November. 
I have attached a few pictures of the day..
