Lindbergh Special Event

A Special Event Station is a special operation usually in observation
or commemoration of a special or historical event.  On Sunday, May 20,
2018 from 9:30 AM until 4:30 PM members of the Long Island Amateur
Radio Club will be operating a special event station at the Cradle of
Aviation Museum under the call sign of the museum, K2CAM.  This
special event station is in commemoration of Charles Lindbergh’s
transatlantic flight on May 20th, 1927.

Charles Lindbergh took off in the Spirit of St. Louis. at 7:52 AM on
the morning of May 20th, 1927. Departing Roosevelt Field, Garden City,
Long Island, New York, he flew non-stop for 33 1/2 hours, arriving at
Le Bourget Airport, Paris, France, at 10:22 Paris time. We will be on
the air from 9 AM until 4:30 PM.

ARISS Contact and Freeport Public Schools 3/27/18

Today Freeport High School hosted an ARISS program including a very nice
exchange between students and the ISS.  It was livestreamed for about 2
hours and 27 minutes.  The program can be re-played at
livestream.com/fps. The last hour is of most interest.

Our vice president, Craig Ross, spoke representing amateur radio and LIMARC.

Of the few ARISS contacts that I have seen, I think this was the best
prepared and executed.
