Re: Schools & Satellites in the U.S.

Hello Rob, VK3JKA,

I am in Greenbelt, Maryland, which is about 20 km NE of 
Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Capitol.  I would be honored to give 
you and your family a tour of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.  

Also I can arrange a visit to nearby DuVal High School that just 
flew a GAS canister experiment on the John Glenn STS-95 flight 
and are starting a ham radio club with the help of the Goddard 
Amateur Radio Club (GARC), WA3NAN.  

You will also be updated on the GARC member activities, local 
AMSAT activities, as well as all the hard work being done in 
preparation for substantial Amateur Radio on the International 
Space Station that, through the fault of our normally very busy 
schedules alone, have not received widespread publicity to date.  

When is your visit to D.C.?  


AMSAT Area Coordinator, ...
