Andy MacAllister, W5ACM has written an AMSAT Field Day article for the
May/June issue of The AMSAT Journal.  Also included is a form for
logging your FD satellite contacts and submitting to W5ACM.  All sats
are in play except the Shuttle SAREX (if up) and the Mir Space Station.
Currently the issue is in draft review and we expect it in all members
mailboxes before 01JUN98.

Good luck with Field Day!  We hope to hear you as we will be operating
HF and sats via W5XX, at the Vicksburg High School Gators' Football
Stadium, Vicksburg, Mississippi.
