ARLB040 Field Day Bulletin

Crew members aboard the current STS-78 shuttle mission are planning
to operate during this year's Field Day.  Valid two-way contacts
with the shuttle will count as satellite QSOs for QSO point and
bonus point credit.  Contacts with the packet robot do not count.

As part of the SAREX activities taking place during this mission,
set to launch June 20, NASA Payload Commander Susan Helms, KC7NHZ,
Mission Specialist Charles Brady, N4BQW, and Payload specialist
Robert Thirsk, VA3CSA, hope to find free time to hand out points
from the shuttle to Field Day ops.  The crew will use the following
separate receive and transmit frequencies:

FM voice downlink: 145.55 MHz.

FM voice uplink: 144.91, 144.93, 144.95, 144.97 and 144.99 MHz.
