Re: School Days



Jeff,

I don't want to monopolize the bird, but if you hear me calling, "kf4fdj from
Franklin Park Magnet School," just give us your call, your city, and in your
case, that you are mobile standing outside your patrol car in Alabama. :-)
Maybe you could extend a special greeting of your choice to Miss Contino's 5th
grade class.  Jeff, I think you're right about a kodak moment!

We will be using an Arrow, with the FT50R and a low noise ARR preamp.  We will
be able to hear quite well, as the pass is 68 degrees, and the preamp makes all
the difference.  The kids will be "steering" the antenna, with instructions
from a pass printout.  2 kids are scheduled to make a 3rd party communication.
Other's will be logging the cities, and trying to copy calls.  We plan to
record the pass for review afterwards.

73, and thanks for your interest.  The kids are looking forward to this
experience.  My 10 year old son Joe is a member of the class.
