AMSAT Offering Annual Meeting Remote Participation via EchoLink

10/10/2014

AMSAT will be streaming audio from its Annual Meeting Saturday, October 11, 1945 UTC until 2115 UTC via EchoLink on the *AMSAT* Conference channel. The 2014 AMSAT Symposium is taking place October 10-12 in Baltimore. The Annual Meeting will include a report to the membership by the president and senior officers and include a question-and-answer session. EchoLink participants may send questions using EchoLink’s text-messaging feature.

AMSAT said that some Friday and Saturday Symposium presentations may also be available via EchoLink, as the system is tested prior to the Annual Meeting.

Before accessing EchoLink, new users must download software and validate their licenses. EchoLink use is restricted to Amateur Radio licensees. EchoLink software is free for Windows, Linux, OSX, iPhone, iPad, and Android platforms. An Internet connection is required. After starting EchoLink, search for and select the *AMSAT* Conference (node #101377) and click "Connect." (The channel name includes asterisks before and after the name AMSAT.) — Thanks to AMSAT News Service via Steve Belter, N9IP, and the AMSAT-NA Symposium Committee
