About 45 folks attended my satellite show this evening - including at least
five "first-timers!" - at the Victor Valley (CA) Amateur Radio Club monthly
And when I returned home, emails were waiting ...
Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your excellent presentation in Apple Valley earlier this evening. Informative and fun! Thanks for the shuttle photo!

This club has asked me to speak to them five time the past ten years. They are ALWAYS
welcoming and inquisitive. A lot of professional educators in their ranks ... and they are celebrating their 60th anniversary soon.
The meeting ended with me presenting to the club a "satellite setup" to use as they deem fit: a new Kenwood TH-D72a, Arrow Satellite Antenna, and RT Systems software for the HT. Kind of a "celebration" as I surpassed my 100th satellite presentation this month. And there's no more-deserving group.
More later ...
