Thanks to all responding to my voice recorder question. After reviewing the
suggestions and because of its easy availability at a nearby Best Buy and
also the very reasonable sales price I bought the ICD PX370 and I am happy
with it. Thanks again.

Hi Dan!

I will be at a hamfest in Sierra Vista AZ on Saturday morning.
Like we did a couple of weekends ago, I hope to make a contact
with you at your event in Las Cruces. Nice to see DM62 will be
on the satellites once again.

Good luck, and 73!

Drew,

Today's 1941 UTC AO-91 pass over much of the continental USA sounded fine.
Some stations early in the pass, then many more as North Dakota and N7AGF
came into the footprint. Along with the activity on the FM repeater, the
telemetry page shows several stations uploaded telemetry during the pass.
My audio from this pass is in my Dropbox space http://dropbox.wd9ewk.net/
(folder "Satellite_Audio-2019", then look for the filename starting with
20190501). I was using the same TH-D72/Elk combination today that I used
yesterday.

It appears the reset you did to AO-91 yesterday fixed the issues. The
two passes yesterday, along with the pass earlier today, have sounded
normal.

73!

 Hi Dan,
We'll be the same birds and it'll be a first if we can make a "quick group
QSO" from CM97 to your group in DM62 and Patrick's demo at the hamfest
without tying up the bird too much.? Should be fun !

Hi!

I will give a presentation on how to work amateur satellites and AMSAT,
along with a demonstration of satellite operating, during the Superstition
Amateur Radio Club's monthly meeting on Tuesday, 21 May 2019. The meeting
will be at the City of Mesa's Charles K. Luster Building, located at 640
N. Mesa Drive. in Mesa, Arizona. This is on the west side of Mesa Drive,
and north of University Drive. The meeting starts at 7pm (0200 UTC on 22
May). More information about the club is available at:

http://superstitionarc.org

There appears to be an AO-92 pass coming by after the meeting wraps up,
around 9.15pm (0415 UTC on 22 May). This pass should cover much of the
continental USA. I plan on using this AO-92 pass for a demonstration of
satellite operating. If you hear WD9EWK on that pass, please call and be
a part of the demonstration. The meeting site is in Arizona's Maricopa
County, grid DM43.

QSOs made during the demonstration will be uploaded to Logbook of the
World. QSL cards are available on request (please e-mail me with QSO
details).

Thanks, and 73!

Hi!

I will have an AMSAT booth at the Prescott Hamfest, a two-day hamfest at
the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona, on 31 May
and 1 June 2019. This is the Friday and Saturday following the Memorial
Day holiday weekend. The hamfest is jointly sponsored by Prescott's
Yavapai Amateur Radio Club and the Eagle Amateur Radio Club at ERAU. More
information about the hamfest is available at:

http://hamfest.w7yrc.org

Along with the AMSAT booth, I will have demonstrations of satellite
operating from the hamfest, located in Arizona's Yavapai County, grid DM34.
If you hear WD9EWK on the satellites during these days, please call and be
a part of the demonstrations. QSOs will be uploaded to Logbook of the
World, and QSL cards are available on request (please e-mail me directly
with the QSO details).

Updates during the hamfest will be available on my @?????? Twitter account.

It was one of the busiest passes I have encountered and it isn't even
Saturday yet !!
Heard many new calls and tried calling back but got stepped on, probably
from guys operating simplex, finally got N7AGF when the bird was almost
LOS.? No worries, it was a fun learning experience.

I have been using HRD for a long time, it produces a very useful text file,
called "passes.txt", listing the pass predictions for your grid square.? If
you use HRD Satellite and know how to create the passes text file, you'll
know what I'm referring to.? I have created a simple utility that formats
the text file for better readability. The utility can be downloaded at the
link below.? I use it all the time and am passing it along if anyone may
find it useful.?
?
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1YPzTaLsp7deFUd8CyoHADbyH9G5vR-z0

In this public folder look for the file called "HRDPassesFormatter.exe".?
There nothing to install just download it to a convenient folder and
double-click to run it.? All you have to do is to select the HRD passes file.?

Message-ID: <EFE9EB9F9C0D494994818630392177FE@???>
Content-Type: text/plain;	charset="iso-8859-1"

An International Space Station school contact has been planned with
participants at Mildred Hall School, Yellowknife, NT, Canada

on 03 May. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 18:32 UTC. It is
recommended that you start listening approximately 10 minutes before this
time.The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds.
The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and LU8YY. The contact should
be audible over Argentina and adjacent areas. Interested parties are invited
to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be
conducted in English.



Mildred Hall, a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 School, is located in the
heart of downtown Yellowknife with Frame Lake and its beautiful trail almost
sitting in its backyard.  It houses 271 students from the ages of 4 to 14
with very diverse backgrounds and cultures. Almost 80% of the students are
Indigenous, so it boasts programming that is relevant to hands-on learning,
science inquiry, outdoor experiential opportunities and the instruction of
English, French and Dogrib.  Our basic beliefs revolve around the acronym
SOAR- Share what you have (S), Ownership (O), Achieve your very best (A) and
Respect everyone and everything around you. (R).





Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:



1.  Why is space travel so important to astronauts and other humans?

2.  I saw a picture you took of the northern lights and we have a lot of them

    over here in Yellowknife.  Are you able to fly through the northern

    lights?

3.  How do you see the sun from where you are? Is there a sunrise or sunset?

    Is it different to how we see it on earth?

4.  How long are you there and how long can a person stay in space? Does it

    affect your body in anyway, causing irreversible consequences?

5.  Do you constantly work up there?  Do you do anything for fun? If

    so,what?

6.  What is your favorite thing about being in space?

7.  What is the most challenging thing about being in space?

8.  Does your hair and nails grow at the same rate in space?  Is there

    anything different about the way they grow?

9.  If there is an emergency on the space station and you have to escape, is

    there an emergency pod? If not what happens?

10. What is gravitational time dilation?

11. How do you keep time in space? Are you in a time zone?

12. Do you think humans will ever live on another planet?

13. What were you thinking when you blasted off?

14. What is the strangest thing you have ever seen or experienced in space?

15. Is it as silent as movies show?  Why?

16. What do you miss the most while you are there?

About ARISS:

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative
venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that
support the International Space Station (ISS). In the United States,
sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American
Radio Relay League (ARRL), the Center for the Advancement of Science in
Space (CASIS) and  National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). 
The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts
via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in
classrooms or informal education venues.  With the help of experienced
amateur radio volunteers, ISS crews speak directly with large audiences in a
variety of public forums.  Before and during these radio contacts, students,
teachers, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies,
and amateur radio.  For more informa
 tion, see www.ariss.org, www.amsat.org, and www.arrl.org.



Thank you & 73,
