Good morning,

I have a few reminders regarding upcoming AMSAT events:

1. Ballots for the Board of Directors election are due at the AMSAT-NA
office in one week (September 15, 2016). Please mail your ballots in
today. Ballots that arrive after the close of business on September
15th will not be counted.

2. The 2016 AMSAT-NA Space Symposium and General Meeting will be held
aboard the Carnival Liberty November 10th - November 14th. If you have
not yet booked your cruise and plan on attending, please do so as soon
as possible. See here for further information:


3. If you have already booked your cruise, please remember to register
for the Symposium. You can register via the AMSAT online store here:


4. If you plan to attend the Symposium and wish to bring radios to
operate, please remember that the Carnival Liberty is registered in
Panama. US licensed amateur operators wishing to operate at sea must
obtain an IARP from the ARRL. Details are available at the following


Unfortunately, obtaining a license for operation in Mexico or within
Mexican territorial waters is likely not possible at this time.

5. If you wish to contribute a paper to the Symposium Proceedings
and/or present at the Symposium, please email Dan Schultz
(n8fgv at amsat.org) with a proposed title as soon as possible,
preferably by September 15th. Final papers must be submitted by
October 15th for publication in the printed Proceedings.
