    AMSAT at Ham-Com, 8-9 June, Plano, TX, Special Event K5P


    
    
    AMSAT at Ham-Com, 8-9 June, Plano, TX, Special Event K5P
    
    AMSAT will have an AMSAT Booth, Satellite Demonstrations, and two Satellite Talks at Ham-Com in Plano, TX, on 8-9 June 2012. The talks will be given by Douglas Quagliana, KA2UPW/5, and Keith Pugh, W5IU.  
    
    This year there will be a Special Event activity (sponsored by the Plano Amateur Radio Klub) associated with Ham-Com and the call sign will be K5P.  AMSAT's Satellite Demonstrations will be conducted using K5P as part of the Special Event. Additional details about Ham-Com are available at: http://www.hamcom.org/
    
    If you attend Ham-Com, drop by and see us. In addition, if you can spare an hour or two, we could use the help in the AMSAT Booth and doing the Demos.
    
    We plan to work as many of the following Satellite Passes as possible:
