    ARRL-registered Instructor Clint Bradford, K6LCS, will be
    presenting his "Working Amateur Satellites With Your HT"
    multimedia session at the May 15, 2018 regular monthly
    meeting of the Desert RATS amateur radio club of Palm
    Springs, California. All are welcome to attend.

    “Present schedules show we'll have a couple of workable passes
    of satellites that evening,"Clint reports. “And the club promised
    my wife and I dinner at Manhattan’s of the Desert beforehand: I simply
    could NOT turn down this speaking request!”

    An attendee of Clint’s session at the club a couple years ago wrote:
    "Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the great FM-ham
    satellite demonstration. The SO-50 downlink of only 250 milliwatts
    was awesome to listen to ... When you consider the science and low
    power --- hard to put into words --- but you had the crowd all smiles!”

    The Desert RATS club celebrates its 20th year as an ARRL
    Affiliate Club this year and truly embraces every facet of its mission
    statement: Members are CONSIDERATE of all hams; LOYAL
    to their community and ARRL; PROGRESSIVE by keeping abreast
    of new technologies; probably the FRIENDLIEST club you’ll ever visit;
    respecting LIFE BALANCE, sharing ham activities without interfering with
    family/job/school/community responsibilities; and are PATRIOTIC by
    always being available for its region in times of need.

    Talk-in repeater in the region is the 146.940- 107.2 machine.

    Meetings start promptly at 7 p.m. and are held at:

    Palm Springs Fire Department Training Center
    3000 E. Alejo Rd
    Palm Springs, CA 92262

    If you’d like to preprogram your radios for the passes during the evening,
    Clint has a frequency list (and tutorial) posted on his satellite Web site at:
