I'd love to help out, too.  A park in Auburn would be extremely convenient for me, but i'm happy to help out regardless of the destination.  The area that Greg highlighted at Regional Park is very nice, though Recreation Park is closer to Hwy 80.

It will likely be far easier to rent a park site than have Sierra College grant permission. Plus, I think Sierra College charges for parking.

Sierra College is a huge site.  How much space do we need?

Besides Recreation Park in Auburn, there's also Regional Park out here near me (off Dry Creek Rd.)  Two large picnic areas that they rent out, lots of trees, if we want something on the small side.




There's also the main part of the park, over by the Gym.  Not sure how one would rent that, but my wife's Quilt Guild holds their event over there.  They've also had large events - concerts, even a Ren Faire, etc. out there.

Just a thought.

Hey Everyone,

Mark you calendars for Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) on October 19th, 2019!

JOTA is THE biggest amateur radio operating event of the year.  Last year over 1.6 MILLION scouts participated in 152 countries.  Truly an event you are going to want to be a part of!

Our Club hosts a JOTA site each year.  Last year we had the good fortune to be at Beale Air Force Base as a part of Scout Expo.

This year, I need your help!  I am looking for suggestions on where to setup up our station, W6BSA.  The IDEAL site should have the following features:
  • Easy drive from the Sacramento Metropolitan area (biggest draw will be here, but scouts from areas north may come too)
  • Open area free of RFI and power lines to erect antenna masts
  • Trees to hang antennas
  • Access to one or more local repeaters
  • Ample parking and up close to unload and load equipment
  • Does not conflict soccer or baseball games
If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.  I have left a message with Penyrn Park.

Thank you all!

Re: What is IOTA?

Hi Herb,

It's "Islands On The Air".   IOTA is an awards program for making contacts to a number of identified Islands that are activated from time to time.  I've never tried it, but there appears to be info here:  https://iota-world.org/  and also on Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islands_on_the_air

Enjoy,

I can't think of any mountain tops with the accessibility and parking we would need.

So, probably a public park...?    And if we're going to do that, maybe a park in Auburn, for the club's convenience?

I think Auburn Rec Park, near Sacramento Street and Racetrack, might have a nice combination of trees, shade, picnic tables and parking.  I think it's pretty clear of power lines too, but that should be verified. And not a bad spot for VHF repeaters in the area.

FlexRadio Partners with Raytheon on Defense Contract

[amsat-bb] Upcoming ARISS contact with Galileo STEM Academy, Eagle, ID #QST

Greg D
 

Hi folks,

It looks like there will be a school contact with the International Space Station Tomorrow (9/3) morning at 9:05am local time which should be receivable here in Auburn.  The pass will be to the north and east, and pretty high here, peaking at about 45 degrees up.  As usual, the downlink will be on 145.800 mhz, plus or minus a little due to Doppler shift.

Below is a bit of history on the school, and the questions they intend to ask of the astronauts.  Take a moment and scribble down how you might answer the questions, then listen in and compare notes with the crew.  If you have kids / grand kids, it's a great way to get them involved in space as well as ham radio.

Enjoy,

Greg  KO6TH

An International Space Station school contact has been planned with participants at Galileo STEM Academy, Eagle, ID on 03 Sept. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 16:05 UTC. The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be direct between NA1SS and W7GSA. The contact should be audible over the state of Indiana and adjacent areas. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be conducted in English.

Story:

Galileo STEM Academy is a Kindergarten through 8th grade public school, in the West Ada School District, located in Eagle, Idaho. Galileo is a School of Choice. Parents apply for student admission and are accepted by lottery.  Galileo STEM Academy opened in 2007.  Galileo currently has 797 students, 42 certified teachers and 12 classified staff members.

Galileo's mission statement is, "Galileo, a community of explorers discovering their unlimited potential."  The following is our school's Vision Statement, "At Galileo our vision is to encourage students to be their best by promoting a collaborative, safe, learning community, developing and accepting responsibility for personal growth, fostering leadership through service, unleashing unlimited potential through innovative relevant learning, empowering critical thinkers through active engagement and challenging exploration of the great unknown."

Galileo STEM Academy became the first school, in the state of Idaho, to become STEM certified in October 2018 through AdvancEd. Galileo promotes critical thinking and problem-solving skills in students through providing hands on, project-based learning utilizing the engineering design process.  Galileo accomplishes this by providing, to all students, diverse learning opportunities.  These include:

1.Ham Radio Club  
2.Botball and Jr. Botball Robotics using C++ coding language
3.First Lego League Robotics 
4.FabSLAM 3-D Printing Competition Team
5.Rocket Club 
6.Math Counts Competition Team 
7.Raspberry Pi Operating Systems 
8.Maker Space
9.Idaho Tech Challenge

Galileo STEM Academy's students implement authentic STEM skills to attain college and career readiness.  Our students begin coding, making, engineering in kindergarten and continually develop their skills through 8th grade.   Galileo STEM Academy's teachers and staff utilize NASA lesson, ARRL lessons, and attend Professional Development Conferences throughout the year to promote a love of learning and create life-long learners.

Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:

1. How do you get chosen to go to space?

2. Do you play video games on the ISS?

3. How much fuel do you need to get to the ISS?

4. What time do you use on the ISS?

5. How long does it normally take you to orbit around the earth on the
   ISS?

6. Do you feel differently emotionally when you come back from space?

7. Is it hard being in a rocket for more than a day when traveling to
   the ISS?

8. Does zero gravity feel normal?

9. Does sound in space sound louder, quieter, or the same?

10. What is the most uncomfortable thing about your space suit?

11. Can you vote in an election when on the ISS?

12. How do you spend your free time on the ISS?

13. What is your favorite song?

14. Who was your favorite teacher?

15. Are all the countries on the ISS working on different experiments?

16. Do you spend much time with the crews from the other countries?

17. Do you play a musical instrument?

18. Have you ever gotten motion sickness on the ISS?

19. What was the last book you read?

20. Where did you go to college and what was your major?

About ARISS

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station (ISS).  In the United States, sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the ISS National Lab and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or public forms. Before and during these radio contacts, students, educators, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio. For more information, see www.ariss.org.

Thank you & 73,

Re: Northern California WinLink net / week of 01 - 07 September

Hi Ken,

Just so you know, with the completion of WSER and Tevis, the WS8ER-7 repeater has been taken down.  I've also taken the KO6TH-10 gateway down and put my APRS iGate station back on the RF.  I only have equipment for one or the other.

I think the need for a bi-directional APRS iGate out here in North Auburn is probably higher than the Winlink gateway, but am open to counter arguments.
