On Saturday, Feb 1, I will be doing several satellite passes for an "International Day" PTA event at Mata Montessori School in far East Dallas, TX, EM12 (Amateur Radio and AMSAT are international, right?) This though, is a non-amateur radio related event but I got involved through connections with the DFW chapter of the National Space Society. The target audience will be families of students attending the school. I think the upper age limit will be 8th grade.
I will be attempting three FM passes, 1718Z AO-91, 1743 AO-92 and 1848 AO-91. The first 91 pass may be iffy due to building obstructions, but the last two will be definite.
My hope is to have a good crowd in toe for these passes and will probably have them shouting out my call and grid to get them involved. Please look for me, N5HYP and give a call out.
Thanks in advance for supporting this outreach.
Tom Schuessler, N5HYP EM12ms
