"Science Live Bursaries

Ever fancied giving a science demonstration but  would need specialised
The RDS awards bursaries to fund demonstration style science
presentations. The value of the bursaries are up to 1500 euro. This is
to fund equipment and expenses. Recipients will have to present their
demonstrations (once)  to school groups at the Concert Hall, RDS
Ballsbridge. The closing date is 31st May.

CALMAST programme 2006 /07
We are beginning the process of planning for next year and are keen to
get involvement from all interested parties. We would like to get input
from all the main science, engineering, technology and associated areas
(SET) over the next two weeks. Some of the major projects that we will
have next year are:

SET Festivals

    Feb /March                Engineering week
    May                           BealtaineOutdoor Festival of  science
Ongoing Projects
    October - May           International Young Glass designer
                                     Transition year Programmes
                                     SET for Success - programmes for
                                     Chamber of Challenges.
                                     SET Camps
                                     Career events

So I was thinking, why not propose a portable satellite station to  
them.   What I was wondering however is how to make the 1500 euro go  
as far as possible?

Off the top of my head I'm thinking a TH-D7 and an Arrow antenna to  
begin with.

All suggestions welcome.
