      SB SAT @ AMSAT $ANS-277.03
      AO-51 configuration to support Scouting JOTA

      AMSAT News Service Bulletin 277.03
      From AMSAT HQ SILVER SPRING, MD.
      October 4, 2009
      To All RADIO AMATEURS
      BID: $ANS-277.03

      AMSAT-NA is supporting the 52nd Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) Scouting
      event by
      dedicating AO-51 operation to the event.

      For October 17th and 18th, the AO-51 QRP repeater will be allocated
      for JOTA
      use. All users are requested to give way to JOTA stations or QSOs with
      JOTA
      stations.

      The frequencies used for this weekend will be 145.880 FM uplink, and
      435.150 FM
      downlink, no PL tone required. The mode change
      should occur at ~00:00 UTC on the
      17th (Friday evening in the US) and run for approximately 48 hours.

      AMSAT wishes the Scouts good luck operating via the AO-51 satellite
      for the
      event.

      Reports of your JOTA operations should be sent to the AMSAT-BB or
      directly to
      ko4ma@....

      Photo files up to 5 Mb total are also welcome for possible inclusion
      in an
      upcoming AMSAT Journal article.

      73, Drew KO4MA
      AMSAT-NA VP Operations
