IN PLACE OF THE AMSAT-DC Workshop this spring we
have two big splashes in store for the ham public AND
YOU ARE INVITED to join us at either one of them!
The first one, next month, will be in Vienna, Va:
The Vienna Wireless Winterfest
on SUNDAY, February 23, 2014
Steve Greene, KS1G, of Herndon, Va. will be leading
an effort to staff an impressive AMSAT booth as well
as provide a forum and a *possible* satellite demo.
But he needs help from us local AMSAT guys.
PLEASE contact Steve at ks1g(a)amsat.org<mailto:[email protected]> to offer
your time and support.
No experience required!
The second event will be later, in Timonium, Md:
The Greater Baltimore Hamboree and Computerfest 2014
including the Maryland Emergency Preparedness Expo 2014
on SATURDAY, April 5, 2014
I will be attempting something similar if we have the
support. Please contact me at n8pk(a)amsat.org<mailto:[email protected]> or
place a shout out on our amsat-dc email list. We will
have the additional option to fly a small experiment
on a high-altitude balloon if we so choose. The sky is
the limit. Otherwise, I will just staff a three-table booth
of AMSAT goodies like last year. More the merrier!
WE WILL HAVE LOADS OF FUN.
Pat Kilroy, N8PK
AMSAT has many active members in the Washington DC, Maryland, and
Northern Virginia area. I'm forwarding your request to our AMSAT-DC
e-mail list to stir up the volunteers.

In ANS-363, you asked if anyone presenting at a hamfest would let you
know about it -- I'm in the converse situation -- I'm coordinator for
the Vienna Wireless Society Hamfest in Northern Virginia and I'd like
to see if there is anyone, ideally AMSAT-related, who would like to
either do a classroom presentation or a parking lot demo during our
winterfest this February. The event is on Feb 23rd in Annadale, VA.
It will be held at the Northern Virginia Community College, and I have
a classroom and seminar room available for 30-60 minute presentations.
We also control the parking lots, some for parking, some for
tailgating, and the parking lots have a pretty good view of the
horizon for demos.
I'd appreciate it if you could pass this on to anyone you think would
