New AMSAT Director of Field Operations Hopes to Revive Field Organization:

AMSAT's new Director of Field Operations Patrick Stoddard, WD9EWK, of Scottsdale, Arizona, is hoping to return AMSAT's Field Organization to a place of prominence within the satellite organization.

"I look forward to reviving the Field Organization and re-establishing a line of communication with those who want to represent AMSAT at the local level," Stoddard said upon his appointment. "I will be reaching out to those that have assisted us in the past to ascertain their current level of interest in helping AMSAT as well as encouraging others to join our team."

Stoddard will work closely with AMSAT President Barry Baines, WD4ASW, as he begins the process of breathing new life into the Field Operations organization. As director of field operations, he will be responsible for managing AMSAT's corps of area coordinators, who represent AMSAT locally. Area coordinators serve as the "Ambassadors of AMSAT." This may include staffing AMSAT booths at hamfests, giving local/regional club presentations on AMSAT and satellite operations and serving as Elmers to those seeking information about operating through satellites.

At one time more than 100 AMSAT members were on the list of area coordinators in the US and Canada.-- AMSAT News Service
