Hi Philip,

I'm in Illinois so can't help personally with appearances in North
Carolina. There are some additional resources on the AMSAT web which might
help with demonstrations.


I had the Fedex/Kinkos shop in town print copies of the Fox-1 Operating
Guide for a club presentation. I referred the audience to this page so they
could print copies at home if any of the other documents interested them.
