Well done Clint
If everybody did just 10% of your 'outreach' activities, the hobby would be transformed.
Good luck

Subject: [amsat-bb] Extraordinary Night in Mission Viejo, CA

It was a standing room-only crowd of more than 50 last night for my 
presentation for the SOARA club in Mission Viejo, CA.

But what made it truly
unique was that 24 attendees passed their 
Technician tests right before the
satellite show ... as well as a couple 
additional upgrade licenses!

has a wonderful history in the region - and has also been a 
Special Service
Club of the ARRL since 1975. I took a "poll" of how 
long the attending members
have been hams, and there was literally 
hundreds and hundreds of years of
experience present - all excited 
to welcome the new hams and assist in any
aspect of the hobby that 
crops up.

NUMEROUS plugs for the ARRL, AMSAT-NA,
interspersed throughout the show. And - as always - the
Q&A afterward 
was exciting.

THANK YOU to SOARA for the invitation ... AND
for weather that was 
about 20 degrees cooler than staying home tonight!
