* High altitude satellites such as AO-10
* Russia*s Mir and NASA*s SAREX (soon, the International Space Station!)

You'll learn equipment requirements (plus antennas, rotators, feedline), 
operating protocol, how to track satellites with your pc and prepare for 
Phase 3-D, and where to get facts from AMSAT, ARRL and the Internet.

     RF Safety Seminar   --  The FCC RF Exposure Regulations

     The FCC announced changes to the radio regulations that suddenly had 
ham radio operators interested in RF exposure. Ed Hare, W1RFI, ARRL Lab 
Supervisor has put together a workshop that defines the new rules, clarifies 
what is required of ham operators, and even explains the theory behind the 
requirements. Want to know what RF does in the near field of an antenna, or 
how to use software to evaluate RF Safety in your own station? Take part in 
Ed's 5-hour seminar; you'll also receive a workbook and ARRL's RF-safety 
information package.
