“Hams in Space” Team to Appear at ARRL Midwest Division Convention

10/22/2013

The “Hams in Space” team of Eddy Paul, KYØF; Jeremy Widner, ACØDX, and Randy Schulze, KDØHKD, will appear at the ARRL Midwest Division Convention, Friday and Saturday, November 8 and 9, in Lebanon, Missouri. The Hams in Space presentation explains how to successfully get on FM Amateur Radio satellites, in most cases with equipment operators typically already own. Their emphasis is to “keep it simple” and “have fun.” The “Hams in Space” presentation will take place Saturday at noon in Room A. A special guest will be NASA Astronaut Steven Nagel, N5RAW. A good pass of SO-50 will fit into the schedule, and plans call for one or two hands-on demonstrations, weather permitting. — AMSAT News Service via Randy Schulze, KDØHKD
