A College Satellite Night will be held Thursday, September 18, 2008
(local time).

This event is a great opportunity for hams that are satellite active
to interact with college students and elmer a new generation!

Do you know a college student who would find amateur satellites
interesting and intellectually challenging? Have them as a guest at
your station and introduce them to amateur radio in a way they will
never forget.

Look for college stations and students on all the birds that evening
and please give them preference for operation. With the new school
year just starting, new student guests and thus potential young hams
will be present in college shacks around the country.

They look forward to meeting you through the exciting venue of
Orbiting Satellites carrying Amateur Radio!

73, Hope to see you on the birds!

ARCUA Vice President Matthew Barlow W5VO has agreed to demonstrate the
W5YM satellite ground station for this event tomorrow night, Thursday
September 18th.  This is an opportunity for the rest of us to take
notes and assemble an operating manual for the ground station so that
more members can operate through the "birds."

We can discuss further at lunch on Thursday.

73, Dan
