Coming Soon: AMSAT-DC Spring Workshop 2013
by Kilroy, Patrick L. (GSFC-5680)
Dear fellow AMSAT members,
Please go to http://patkilroy.com/amsat-dc/
and read everything top to bottom.
Then please let me know if you have any
comments, questions, recommended edits or
anything else before I send it off to be
published in this weekend's ANS bulletins.
This is our workshop. Only a couple weekends
away. I hope you can attend.
1. We are looking for someone to bring a UHF
signal source for test purposes for the day,
something more substantial than an FM handheld
transceiver if possible. A simple analog SSB
transmitter in very low power mode looping a
recorded voice message would work, and be pretty
cool too. Takers, any one? Please contact me.
2. BRING YOUR CAMERA. Free WiFi.
3. We still need volunteers for this event. The
task list is quite similar to those of our previous
seminars and workshops (see Archives). This event
is run by volunteers for volunteers. For example,
two AMSAT greeters are needed. Also, a video person
with lights, a video editor person, a food organizer,
a Net Control Station for talk-in, go-fers, clean up
crew for examples. (I believe Art Feller is going to
bring his nice big dSLR still camera and gear, so we
are covered for publish-ready type still photos.)
4. We need to get the word out. Can you pass the
word and the amsat-dc Web page URL to your club news-
letter or on a Net? Talk it up on your repeater?
Tell a college kid? (YES!)
Who knows how to get an event announced on Newsline?
On the MDC section Web page and newsletter? Please do!
5. Have you registered through Martha yet? (Please
call her even if you only "might" make it: Unlike
local hamfests where you can walk right in, THERE
WILL BE NO registration on the day of the event!)
THANK YOU for your support.
We will have a great time!
