AMSAT-DC MEETING AND SPACE SEMINAR May 5



AMSAT-DC MEETING AND SPACE SEMINAR

All space enthusiasts and amateur satellite operators are
invited to the next Maryland-DC area AMSAT Meeting and
Space Seminar.  This includes students, teachers, parents
and all Amateur Radio operators!  The gathering will take
place on Sunday, May 5, 2002, starting at 1:00 p.m. EDT
in the auditorium of the Visitor Center at the NASA Goddard
Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland.

All topics at the seminar relate to the amateur space
program, Amateur Radio, homebrew electronic projects,
high-altitude balloon experiments, telemetry, and related
items.  We'll include the hottest AO-40, ARISS, and all
the "New-Sats" news and user setup & operating tips.

The format is a combination of presentations, informal
"show 'n' tell" demonstrations and a social period.
Normally the first presentations and the keynote address
are designed to be especially valuable to beginners.

All aspects of this seminar are brought to you by unpaid,
uncompensated volunteers.  The high quality of past seminars
have received excellent reviews.  You may see last year's
report at our web site to get an idea what is anticipated:

Unlike previous meeting years, the NASA GSFC Visitor Center
is NOT open to the public due to security restrictions
