Why traffic handling? In , the founder of the ARRL, Hiram Percy Maxim, needed to find a station one-half way in between his in Hartford, CT and another station he wished to speak to in Springfield, MA because he could not do it with the equipment he had at the time. Thus, traffic handlers find themselves in the proud position of continuing the fine tradition of message passing QTC that the ARRL was originally founded upon many years ago! So we had a total of 45 check-in instances sum of all 3 nights of check-ins , with 24 individual stations participating and 26 messages passed; all have been cleared as of yesterday. Previous years data are available. Please contact me if you would be able to assist us
George began by noting that operating via satellites is easy, giving examples of the RS satellites which any ham with simple HF equipment could use. He also showed the range of satellites available to hams from Phase 3, Oscar 10 through Oscar 27, effectively an FM repeater in space. George urged the club to set up the club repeater to transmit satellites and NASA audio to allow members and listeners to become familiar with the modes and gain experience via the repeater. A theme that ran through Georges "RS" presentation was an urging to get the youth of the community involved via youth projects. Further information on this is available by e-mailing George at w1me amsat. George handed out several disks containing useful satellite programs and information to get members started in the mode. We were fortunate in having George and Keith to present to the meeting and the extended session was testimony to their interesting content and presentation.
