      Dear ARRL members,

      For more than 35 years, the Hall of Science Amateur Radio Club (HOSARC)
      has demonstrated amateur radio to children at the Hall of Science
      Museum in Queens, NY. We have also trained hundreds of new hams at our
      free ham radio classes at the museum. We are now in jeopardy of being
      removed from the museum as amateur radio is no longer a priority
      exhibit at the museum, there is a change of leadership at the museum,
      and there are renovations going on at the museum .

      To help maintain our demonstration station, I need ARRL's help.
      Specifically, I need ARRL to make mention of our plight on its "Amateur
      Radio News and Features" frontpage and post a link to our petition to
      stay in the museum. Our petition can be found at:
      http://tinyurl. com/6ljost

      We need many thoughtful signatures on our petition before we meet with
      the new president of the museum to plead our case (hopefully in the
      first week in January). We need to show our new museum president (Dr.
      Margaret Honey) that amateur radio is still an important part of
      children's science education and that she can and should take advantage
      of the wonderful resource amateur radio can be to the museum.

      Additionally, if the ARRL has any connections to New York City
      government officials, those connections would certainly come in handy
      when talking to the museum.

      I look forward to hearing from you,
      Tom Tumino, N2YTF
