Hello all, 

Looking for volunteers from anywhere but especially North Texas to help at
the AMSAT booth/demos at Ham-Com at the Irving Convention Center this coming
June 9 and 10.  Please contact Keith Pugh, W5IU or myself for more
information.  If nothing else make sure you stop by and say hi.

Also looking for AMSAT participation with the Dallas Amateur Radio Club at
an annual STEM event called "Moon Day" at the Frontiers of Flight Museum,
Love Field, Dallas, TX.  This year's event will be July 22nd .  DARC has an
inside table with demonstrations of Amateur Radio and interesting
technology.  See http://www.flightmuseum.com/moon-day/ for information on
the event.  Since it is a space themed technology event, AMSAT satellite
demos and contacts fit in quite nicely.  I had an outdoor setup on the
Museum grounds last year and made quite a number of contacts and got some
young people on the air.  This is a great outreach of Amateur Radio to the
general public.

Unfortunately, I will be out of town this year and cannot participate.  As a
result, I am putting a call out to others to team up with the DARC folks to
demonstrate how we develop and use space technology for communications.

For more information you can contact me off list at n5hyp at arrl.net and I
will put you in touch with Tom General, KE5ICX of the Dallas Amateur Radio
Club.  I have one firm commitment so far to help but there is a need for
several others to help fill the day.
