ARLS023 AMSAT on TV on Friday

Here's an update on Amateur Radio's next scheduled appearance on
network television.

The cable television Sci-Fi Channel on Friday evening's (November
17) ''Inside Space'' program will show a broad overview of the
activities over the years of the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation
(AMSAT), along with scenes and accompanying discussion of other
Amateur Radio activities, according to the latest word from AMSAT
Executive Vice President Keith Baker, KB1SF.

Tentative plans are for airings on Friday evening the 17th at 9 PM
Eastern Time and later in the weekend.

Footage shot recently by the Sci-Fi Channel of AMSAT Phase 3-D
satellite construction and testing at the AMSAT laboratory in
Orlando will be held for possible airing on ''Inside Space''
sometime late next year, closer to the projected launch date for the
satellite, Baker said.

''Inside Space'' will air Friday, November 17, at 9 PM Eastern Time
and again at 1 AM ET on the 18th.  An additional airing of the
program is set for 11 AM ET on Sunday, November 19.
