Re: FD 2000



I agree with Bob.  One of the aspects of Field Day (besides the obvious
emergency communications aspect) is to help make the public more aware of
amateur radio.  If we can show them more than one aspect of the amateur
satellites (i.e. voice and data) via a handheld radio, can't we maximize our
efforts?

Just a thought.
