School Day test via MIR on 27 April



Dr. Larsen of the MIREX team has announced a special MIR School Day
communications test on 27 April between 1000 UTC and 2300 UTC.  The
purpose of the test is to let as many schools as possible communicate
their position and brief message via MIR.  To date, there are about 30
schools signed up, with only seven being outside of the USA.

As was demonstrated during the 11 March test, as many as 50 schools in a
single footprint can probably participate and still have an excellent
chance of being seen.  If you can set up your TNC, and modest 2m FM radio
to an omni antenna at a school, then you are welcome to participate.  For
details, see the previous announcements on the subject, or browse
