If you have not yet registered for the 2014 AMSAT Symposium, there is still
time. Go to the AMSAT website. There you will find all the information
needed. The meeting will have interesting talks(one with a very
distinguished guest), good food and a very special tour of the Smithsonian
Udvair Hazy Air and Space Center on Monday.
Don't hesitate - make your plans Now!
This morning conditions have certainly deteriorated weather wise. The wind was blowing again, as it always does off the ocean, and it was raining. I was also tending one of our dogs that was on a leash tied to my leg, so not only did I have to fend off the rain and contend with the wind, but I had to keep untangling the leash from the table legs so the dog wouldn't tip everything over. And I received reports of RF feedback which didn't surprise me since everything is soggy here and I was probably a little low on battery voltage.
Nevertheless, I was able to make contact with N8IRC, K4FEG, N5OXT and N8RO.
Just as a reminder, it won't be necessary to send me a QSL to get CN73 confirmed. I will send EVERYONE I worked a QSL confirming our QSO, and when I get home I will upload the QSOs to LOTW.
Thanks to everyone. I will be on again on FO-29 for the evening passes if it has stopped raining.

As the Trustee of K5LBJ, the LASA High School Amateur Radio Club, in Austin, Texas, last Friday (9/19) was an exciting day. After almost a year of hard work, the school's satellite tracking/communication station made "First Contact." As you are aware, satellites work on their own schedule, so when I noticed an SO-50 pass at the beginning of the school day, I hoped for the best. I was not disappointed. During the pass, I was able to work W5PFG, N8RO, NX9B, and WI9I. What a great moment in our club's 10th anniversary year!
I can't wait to get students on the air over satellites. I teach an Amateur Radio elective class (where most of our building/maintenance is done), and last Spring, the students assembled and tested the satellite array. Unfortunately, we only obtained the Icom 910H during summer, so this was the first time to test it. Eureka!
Many thanks to Mark Spencer, WA8SME, and the ARRL ETP ("Big Project") program that provided the computer interface for our EL/AZ rotator, and also the Dayton Amateur Radio Association (DARA) which funded coax and other items to make this project happen. Of course, we could not have made it happen without the support of the Austin Amateur Radio Club which funded the Icom 910H. Finally, I would like to express our appreciation for our mentor, Ron Parsons, W5RKN, who continues to guide and support our school in its satellite endeavors.
LASA High hopes to be much more active in the satellite community in the future. Thank you for getting us off to a great start.

Our road trip was completed last week. We traveled a total of about 4500 miles and were able to activate 14 grids. Radio problems kept us from operating as N8RO/MM on our cruise and we both both were sick after the cruise from some "bug" that we probably picked up on the boat. However, the trip was a sucess and very enjoyable.
All contacts have been uploaded to LOTW using my call N8RO without any portable designation. I will send out all paper cards within the next few days to all that have requested them. I may request a few contacts to send a paper card to me because I am getting close to the 100 portable operations that I need for a reverse VUCC.
Many thanks for all of the contacts on this trip.

On this pass I worked AC0RA, WA4NVM, NX9B and N8IUP. I will be on again on FO-29 at 01:07 UTC. Again, it is windy and raining on and off here on the Oregon coast. Makes for uncomfortable operating trying to keep the rig dry.

I think I've identified the problem, it will take 24 hours to tell if the
fix is successful.
Basically, a problem with a querying a large table in the database that
needs to be optimised for performance. 1.3M rows!
As always, thank you for supporting the project and the feedback.
