REMINDER:

The Engineering Fair (E-Fair) is TODAY at the Reitz Union.  Its in the
brand new "Grand Ballroom" on the 2nd floor, near the movie theatre.

The GARC table is located on the south side (Salon E,F,G), just to the
left of the main entrance.

For those off-campus, a FREE parking area has been established in the
parking lot across the street from the Reitz Union on Museum Road.  Just
tell them you are here to visit the Engineering and Science Fair and they
will let you park there.

The fair runs TODAY only until 7pm.  However, many of the exhibitors will
likely be packing up after 5pm, especially if attendance is light.

GARC members who are available to help pack up the table and take
equipment back to the club station are requested to please help.  Stop by
around 5:30-6pm for take-down.

The GARC table has the following on display:

- ICOM 706 Transceiver with ladder-line J-pole antenna
- Kenwood TS-870S Transceiver (display only)
- Vibroplex keyer
- ATV Transmitter with Antenna, Video Camera and Television display
- Laptop computer playing "Amateur Radio Today"
- Laptop computer running STS Orbit+ Satellite Tracking software
- W4DFU QSL cards
- Photos from 2001 Seahorse Key Lighthouse DXpedition
- ARRL Exhibit kit brochures
- GARC club cards
- GARS brochure
- Gainesville Hamfest flyers
- Skywarn flyers
- Amateur Radio Challenge (5 questions from Technician pool)

Additionally, Shannon KG4NGY brought a code oscillator and straight key to
demonstrate morse code to the grade school kids who got a real kick out of
hearing their name sounded out in morse code.

Thanks to Shannon Boal, Todd Sherman, Matthew Henry, Nicole, and Jeff
Capehart for organizing and operating the display at the E-Fair.  Great
job!

Reminder also that the *Gainesville* (GARS) club meeting is tonight at
7:30 pm at the AvMed building out near I-75 and NW 39th Avenue.
