Re: Saturday

Good thoughts, Richard.

I might add a suggestion that any "search parties" connect to the Chatnet 
IRC and join #amsat during the day.  That has proven quite useful already, 
just by having somebody else check out a possible signal LIVE at the same 
time...hopefully the number of "false alarms" will be greatly reduced that 
way.  (I don't know about you folks, but there is over a one hour delay in 
messages through this list to my mail box.  Hard to beat live interaction 
on IRC).

Nothing like having 6 other people say "nah, don't hear anything at that 
frequency" for a reality check.  Or 6 other people say "yes, I hear it 
too!!" ;-)

I plan to be there for a good portion of the day.  Hope to see some of you 
there as well!
